Insight 313: FaithSoaring Churches Consider Outlying Choices
Congregations seeking to transform are not afraid to consider choices for their future which are not initially embraced by members of their congregation. The ability to consider outlying choices come from a mature atmosphere created in the congregation where they are emotionally mature enough to dialogue and pray about risky futures.
If they need to consider relocation they will do it. If they need to consider merging with two or more congregations they will do it. If they need to consider inviting other congregations to worship in their facilities they will do it. They are just that emotionally and spiritually mature.
