Insight 214: FaithSoaring Churches Innovate Rather Than Control
Congregations seeking to transform design their church for innovation rather than for control. When a congregation is designed for control it is because the church has gotten to a point where the controllers believe it is just right and does not need to transition and change any further.
Or, it is at a point where the controllers want to keep it from becoming “that kind of church.” Or the controllers fear the church will die if they do not control it.
A church built for innovation is always modulating the style of what it does, but maintains its core substance.
