Reaching the “Unaffiliateds”

from The Resurgent Church by Mike McDaniel

I pastor a church called Grace Point, and it was born for a certain kind of person, though each one has a different story, a different life, and a different winding road that leads to God’s kingdom. At Grace Point, we say we’re a church “for those who have given up on church, but haven’t given up on God.” Yet we have to face the fact that there are also those who have given up on church and God.

As a matter of fact, people like this are growing far more rapidly than the God-and-church tribe. In a Western world once rich in faith and mission, “no belief” is the hottest religious status of the day.

A Solution for Senior Pastors

by Chris Mattix

Last week, we held our fourth meeting of one of our Senior Pastor Next Steps groups. This group began meeting in September 2014 in Dallas and concluded last week in San Antonio. These 12 pastors were from churches in 8 different states, representing over 28,000 people in their congregations. Some had elementary aged children, and others had elementary aged grandchildren. One thing, though, they all had in common was their desire to continue to lead well as a senior pastor, not only in how they lead their congregation, but also their staff, community, and family. Being in this Senior Pastor Next Steps group gave them the advantage of hearing from ministry experts in the latest trends and resources for churches, and connected and encouraged them as they shared their ministry and family journeys.
