The Role of Middle Judicatories in Creating Connections

This paper addresses the middle judicatory challenge of showing congregations that are, or wish to be, autonomous that they are also partners in mission with other congregations, agencies and offices of their denomination. The challenges vary by denomination because the degree of local church autonomy varies, but all middle judicatories face similar key issues. Contemporary secular political and cultural values, geographic mobility of members, declining brand loyalty, generational differences in worship style, and theological differences among churches within the judicatory are some of the issues raised and discussed in Research Report Conference I: The Middle Judicatory as a System of Congregations Connected to the Regional Office, Research Report by Adair T. Lummis.
