COLUMBIA, Md.—Is your church plateaued or in decline? If so, you’re not alone. You’re in the majority. Statistics indicate that over 80% of Christian churches in America are in that situation.


“AWAKEN” is a revitalization process that has helped many Baptist Convention of Maryland/Delaware (BCM/D) churches move forward from plateau or decline, and grow with new life, reaching out to their communities. Join a cohort, and you’ll share with other pastors in similar situations, learning from and encouraging one another and finding refreshment and renewal.

The BCM/D and the Eastern Baptist Association are partnering for a new AWAKEN Cohort in 2019 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Take the first step and register for an overnight stay at the Holiday Inn, Ocean City, Feb. 18-19, for orientation/discernment. Interested pastors on the Eastern Shore and in Delaware are encouraged to register soon.

Pastors who are west of the Bay who are interested in the AWAKEN process should contact Church Services Consultant Randy Millwood,
