What’s NEXT?

Many main-line churches are struggling/closing. Buildings are old and expensive to maintain. Membership is growing older. Pledges and congregational contributions are no longer sustaining all the needs of growing church budgets. Churches can no longer support full-time staff. All of this while churches try to maintain worship and faithful ministries centered in Christ and God’s Word.  What’s NEXT?  This summary is a good place to start.  Plan now to attend the 2015 event in Chicago.
