Insight 063: FaithSoaring Churches Focus on Benefits for Connecting with Their Congregation
Congregations needing to transform too often have a desperate need for new people to connect with their congregation who can be active, have leadership ability, and will tithe their income through the congregation. They want these people to provide the new attendance, leadership, and financial support the congregation needs to transform. This comes close to suggesting new people are wanted to help long-termed members fulfill their goals.
If congregations really want to transform they will focus on how they can help any new people who connect with them to grow spiritually, and feel accepted by a caring Christian community.
