Insight 341: FaithSoaring Churches Address Multiple Affiliations
Congregations seeking to transform may have multiple affiliations. They are not always affiliated with just one denomination as they seek to address the diversity and complexity of ministry particularly in urban areas. They may also be affiliated with various parachurch organizations who provide inspiration, collaboration, and resources. Community-based organizations are also an important part of their ministry in their marketplace setting.
No one denomination, parachurch organization, or community-based organization has all the answers. Also, networking in multiple arenas is an important part of resourcing the ministry of congregations seeking to transform. With multiple affiliations, congregations still must maintain focus.
