Mark and Thom delve into the issue of changing your church’s name. They suggest asking five questions. Too many church leaders have made big mistakes by not asking these questions:

1. Is there a compelling reason to change the name?

2. Is the reason for changing the name more positive than negative?

3. Have I asked the opinion of key influencers in the church?

4. Is this the right decision for the church if I am gone in a year?

5. What are the consequences if the effort fails?
