VAN HELDEN, Sophia (Phia). Aspects regarding a turnaround process. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2014, vol.48, n.1, pp.01-13. ISSN 2305-0853.

This article focuses on aspects regarding a turnaround process. Such a process ought to be considered where declining congregations face a dead end. Although the complexity of a turnaround is clear, such a process is still possible. The scriptural principles regarding the possibility of such a process ought to be discovered and contextually applied by each unique congregation. A deep whole-hearted self-learning process, as well as the positives of an appreciative language approach (Appreciative Inquiry), conclude that not only the contents of the turnaround, but also the manner in which it is done, ought to speak of a turnaround. The many intertwined aspects discussed in this article can direct those who are serious about the possibility of establishing growing and healthy church practices.
