When a Judicatory Can Intervene to Promote Church Change

Congregations are open to judicatory influence at key moments: at the change of a pastor, in times of church conflict, in the planning and execution of regional activities and programs, or when a church is touched by trauma. In each instance, a new conversation may be initiated between the judicatory representative and the church, and the church may be more open to strengthening its allegiance to the denomination. Read Loren Mead's essay discussing these and other key points: http://hirr.hartsem.edu/denom/judicatories_research_mead3.html.
