A potentially unsettling question for church leaders

Is your church prepared to put mission before church?

HT Nick Cuthbert.

I guess it’s the old maintenance v mission question that every local church and group of local churches needs to grapple with (though they don’t always realise there is an issue).

It’s potentially unsettling because it calls into question the status quo. Are there programmes and styles that belong to a previous decade?

I suspect that it’s the church that keeps mission front and centre that is less likely to lose its way and fade into irrelevance.
