VIEW FROM THE PEW: Managing Change

As society evolves, churches must also evolve in order to meet the needs of new generations. A basic problem for all churches is to manage the rate of change. A church can become irrelevant if it changes too slowly or if it refuses to change at all. A church can become ineffective if it changes too rapidly.

Actively soliciting feedback, especially criticism, from members and non-members will help the church leadership better understand the problems it must solve in order to meet the needs of a changing society.
