In this bonus interview, Tony sits down with David Emery, the lead pastor of Harvard Avenue Christian Church (Tulsa, OK), to discuss how they overcame decline, leadership change, and even the pandemic to find a new season of health, growth, and joy in ministry.

Regardless of their uniqueness, every church has the potential to go through a very similar lifecycle: Most churches start, grow, thrive, decline, and eventually end. But God's plan for our churches is to mature to a place of sustained health.

In this episode, Tony and Amy are unpacking the challenges that come with the lifecycle phases of launch, momentum growth, and strategic growth, and how to overcome them.
