We have watched it before and we are watching it today: Church closures!
- In America, 3,500 – 4,000 churches closer their doors every year for good.
- Half of all churches last year did not add a new member through conversion growth.
- Churches lose an estimated 2,765,000 people each year to nominalism and secularism.
In America, much of this can be attributed to a simple truth: Team Wreckers!
We are here to welcome you to the third installment in the “Being An Excellent Team Player” Series on the Transformed Podcast.
In our message today, Dr. Smith looks at those men and women who cripple the local church, bring disunity to the congregation and are a cancer to the soul of God’s people.
As he speaks rather humorously and pointedly to the leaders of the Open Door Worship Center Dr. Smith exposes the top 10 characteristics of a team wrecker!
Now, let’s join him in his talk, which is already in progress …
And with that Dr. Smith wraps up this timely and challenging message from the Word of God. It is our sincere hope and prayer that you will choose to flesh out the words of the Bible in your daily life as a result of listening today.
Would you help us spread the word?
Could you take just a moment and contact a friend and share the link to this message and encourage them to listen as well? Thank you!
Christmas is right around the corner!
With Christmas only a couple of months away we know you would like to get your shopping done early AND give a meaningful gift this year to the ones you love.
Dr. Smith has written two daily devotionals that cover every day of the coming year … allowing you to give the gift that keeps on giving God’s Word and His encouragement in the lives of your family and friends.
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
In His Image explores God’s great love for humanity from every book of the Bible. From the creation of Genesis to the culmination in Revelation, God’s love shines through every page. Never is this ever clearer than in the times of Israel’s great betrayal of their God. His passionate pursuit of His children can be heard dripping from his voice as He calls them (and us by proxy) back to His shelter and protection.

Today’s episode was recorded live in Culver City, California at the First Southern Baptist Church and edited by Melodee Smith in La Puente, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying you would be filled with the hope of God so that you stand firm in the midst of our crumbling culture!
