Renewal Through A Ministry of Relationships

The Presbyterian Church’s Philadelphia Presbytery has been adapting the Book of Order to create new openness to ways of being the church. The model is no longer “how do churches support the presbytery?” Now it’s a question of how the presbytery supports congregations, understanding that congregations are being sent out by God to touch lives in their communities. They are becoming missional, relational communities seeking to discern where God is calling them. In this interview, Jeanne Bragdon Radak, the associate executive for congregational ministry in the Presbytery of Philadelphia, discusses the effort to embrace new forms of being church, now that the model from the 1950s and 1960s no longer works.
