How is this different from all the other compromising church growth practices used?
Our is not a "business first" method. We understand and emphasize that no amount of planning and strategizing will create Kingdom success. Nor are we interested in changing liturgical norms to appeal to cultural sensitivities. Our approach is closer to what Martin Thornton presents in his book, Christian Proficiency. Our first goal is the spiritual vitality of the parish, after that, it is putting all the other pieces in place for conditions that promote growth naturally.
