Cutting Edge Ministry
Here is a blog posted at Path1 that needs to be read.
“Beware ministry on the cutting edge; because on the cutting edge you bleed.” I’m told this piece of advice was circulating more than a decade ago, in the church growth movement, among mega church staff people. The idea was this — better to play it a bit safe when trying to grow a mega church. Let someone else experiment. Use the tried- and-true methods that are working to grow your church — and don’t take too many chances. This advice may have worked in the 1990’s of fast growing suburban church planting; but in my world, the words take a different twist.
