Can you provide assistance in interpreting the report? If you’d like to learn more about the play, I very much enjoyed this article by Alissa Wilkinson from Christianity Today.

Churches that see impact and regular growth do so because they have strong leadership throughout the church (not just the lead pastor).

Jesus taught that only God need be feared since he alone has the authority to cast into hell (Luke 12:5). The church is governed by officers elected by the congregation.

Tim, S4G’s national director, lives in Malvern with his wife Jen and his son Tobijah. The church is called the “called out ones” which is what the Greek word “ekklésia” means and is a compound word of “ek” meaning “out” and a derivation of “kaleo” meaning “to call” so it is not actually called the church but literally the “called out ones.” The church, as you know, is not a building but the living stones being built upon the foundation of the apostles and the prophets laid atop the Chief Cornerstone, Jesus Christ (Eph 2:20).

Permission/Relationship: “... we cared for you. They are truly authoritative leaders of the church's ministry. Any form of church government that gives pre-eminence to one person or persons, rather than to the Lord Jesus Christ is unscriptural. These leaders inspire people to reach for a common goal. The pastor receives from and is directly accountable to God, and he runs the ministry according to his depth and knowledge in God.

Because they lack the perfection of one, two or any more of the five-fold ascension gifts. But, in another sense, this is an issue which goes right to the heart of the gospel. The Committee oversees the identification, development and care for the volunteer leaders at St James. The innate stability of smaller churches can thus absorb the change of minister every few years if necessary. The highest standards must be maintained at all levels of church leaders, especially among the elders. “Pastoral” captures the idea of elders who actually shepherd the people of God, not just sit as a decision-making board.

The average response rate for these churches was roughly 30%-35% of the total membership. Just 35 percent of the men in the United States say they attend church weekly.

It was understood that the Church was the body of Christ with a mission to fulfil and each local church was free to respond to the Holy Spirit to carry out its responsibilities. Respondents answered both honestly and objectively. 4. Why is the latter so vital to our future? The church of these last days will be confronted with greater opposition than ever before. Yet for all this, we must recognize the dangers of populating positions of church authority, reserved for men, with women: The results will not be God's best (Isa. 3:12; Jdg. 4:9).
