420A Minding the Business of the Church--Simply and Biblically
Although we cannot “manufacture” quantitative church growth, we are entrusted to the responsibility to be diligent in planting and watering in anticipation of the harvest (1 Corinthians 3:6). Beginning with an overview of the theology of the church, we will consider her relationship to society and institutionalization. Various models and resources will be presented as we probe the challenging Biblical and practical questions relating to growth and change within the church. A balanced view incorporating organization and structure to accommodate the life of the church will be offered along with Biblically-based practical tools.
