Does Your Church Reflect Your Community?
One of the most important questions your church can ask about its community is, “Do we reflect the people we’re trying to reach?”
Sometimes your church is trying to engage a group of people no one else is reaching, so you don’t look anything like those you want to reach. But most of the time, it’s easier to reach people with whom you share common traits.
