Insight 008: FaithSoaring Churches Start with People Rather Than Programs
Guess what? The program-driven congregation in North America started dying in the 1970s. It was replaced with the process-driven congregation. The program-driven congregation was about producing successful programs using–even abusing–people as the currency of success.
The process-driven congregation is about empowering people along their disciplemaking journey. The measurement of success is the significance of their spiritual formation and the impact of their missional engagement as maturing disciples.
For FaithSoaring Churches, it is essential to begin with people where they are on their personal disciplemaking journey, and help them take the next steps of significance in their journey.
