My husband is a pastor and we've been in our current church about 2 years, but we are not seeing a sincere desire or effort to grow (spiritually or numerically.) God called us here and he has not indicated that we should leave, but sometimes it feels like we're beating our heads against a brick wall. I know there's a prophet who was told to preach even though the people wouldn't listen. Are there any other stories I'm forgetting where God called men to lead a dead/dying congregation? And, does God still call men to do this to teach them faithfulness? Or am I just lacking faith that God will revive our church? Sometimes I feel that our efforts here are wasted.
