Subtly Proactive: Judicatories and Their Congregations

Church members today will not be coerced or treated as subservient. Church pastoral leadership must now be oriented toward influencing, directing, coordinating, and guiding the thought and behavior of persons and groups in ways those persons and groups consider legitimate. Similarly, middle judicatories are increasingly limited to the same means and methods of influencing and directing the thoughts and actions of the churches within their purview. Read these findings of a 1999-2000 survey of regional judicatory leaders of seven denominations on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research.
