Kevin and Thom look at a common issue facing many churches: low commitment of church members. They take you on a three-part journey that both explains the reasons for the low commitment and ways your church can move to higher commitments. In this first of three episodes, they examine the background of how churches go this way.
1. The issue of imitating organizations in culture.
2. The failure to establish expectations.
3. When numbers mean too much.
4. Getting away from biblical preaching.
5. Failure to define and make disciples.
