There are exceptions to everything, but in general the answer is no. The culture determines the success or failure of any church and the faith in general. Culture gave it birth, and its current problems come from the same source.
This link tells pastors it is not their job to reverse falling church attendence, but to minister to those who remain. What this means, however, must be different in different churches and denominations.
As the average age of some congregations increases, I suppose this means preachers adjust sermons and policies to accomodate older people. There will be more hospital calls and funerals.
In the case of urban areas, one would guess there is some churning and turnover of membership. If the values and preferences of the congregation start to change the preacher has to be on board to adjust.
There certainly appear to be preachers who either start churches or take over existing small churches and preside over phenomenal growth. The result is sometimes called the mega church.
To me, these preachers capture a specific audience that shares his/her cultural values. The values of that congregation then will be almost impossible to change by the same or a different preacher.
In churches in general, the train has left the station and the preacher is along for the ride. He/she cannot change the direction of the track.
Some preachers may see themselves as on a mission to save souls or convert the masses. Mostly, they reinforce existing cultural values.
