Judicatory Work with Congregations: What They Do and Why

The general question under discussion in this paper is how judicatory executives best carry out their work to keep their congregations vital and associated in common mission, given the tensions within congregations to act autonomously and locally, and their general preference to not adopt the changes that would lead to greater vitality. Working from surveys and interviews with denominational executives at the national and regional level, this paper articulates the strategies, processes, and time commitments involved in both building relationships with local churches and providing them practical help.
