Rural churches across North America are dying at alarming rates. Rural Church Turnaround is about real people who decided their rural communities need a life-giving church. Rural Church Turnaround recounts the experiences of pastors and lay-leaders who led their dying congregations back to health, vitality, and impactful ministry.

 Dr. Davis's effort in compiling this resource is an answer to a personal prayer of mine. My life and ministry is a product of the rural church.

Danny’s book sure provides a blueprint for how struggling and declining rural churches can weather the storm of turnaround. While many churches attempt, very few arrive. And it is Danny’s book that highlights the stories of those churches who attempted, arrived, and now are thriving.

Danny Davis shares stories of this hope as he outlines the principles and practices necessary for a rural church comeback story. I believe this book will inspire and encourage many leaders to see with fresh vision God’s heart for their rural communities as they believe Him for their own comeback story.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Danny for a few years now, and it didn't take long for me to realize he was going to be an incredible asset to rural church pastors. His new book Rural Church Turnaround just proves what I already knew. He is quickly becoming one of the leading voices in the rural church landscape. In this book Danny shares stories of pastors who inherited rural churches on the brink of collapse, and somehow brought them back. Each pastor's story of revival is unique, and yet you'll find yourself relating to each of their struggles and their moments of joy. This is a must read for every rural church pastor.
