Why does the church exist? What are the priorities of the church? If we are ruthlessly honest with ourselves, we would have to admit that much of our time is spent on “traditional church busywork.” We meet together, serve on committees, develop policy and bylaws, struggle with budgets, build facilities, and develop programs—but for what purpose? Where is the church’s impact within our lives, neighborhoods, cities, regions and nation?
These are some of the critical questions that are examined in this book.
