This sermon was preached by Kevin Smith in Southern Seminary’s chapel.

Kevin Smith gave a great and convicting word about pastoring to dying congregations. So many future ministers seem to close the possibility that God would want them to serve in churches where the congregation is old and there is not much to any life in the church. The temptation is to immediately move to plant churches. But our God is great and powerful enough to call forth life in any church situation. Every future minister of the gospel needs to be open to going to a church of 45 people over the age of 50 to love and teach them.
