Innovative Ministry in Experimental Urban Churches

One young church posts background information on key proposals to the church’s website prior to annual meetings so members can log in, read, and vote online, ahead of time. Another congregation hired a “roving listener” to engage neighbors in conversation and connect them to one another based on needs and skills, then tie it all back to the church. The article, "Ministry by Design," published by the Center for Congregations, highlights a few congregations and their innovative efforts to revitalize their communities and ministries. The Center for Congregations is an Indianapolis-based organization that supports faith communities by offering advice, workshops, speakers, resources and events in Indianapolis and online.
