I know a church leader out in Vancouver who was called to go into a particular local church as a consultant for them – to help them with their decline. He decided, before he met with the Church, to first go around the neighbourhood of the church to ask its neighbours what they thought of the church. He said to me that the majority of neighbours around the church didn’t even know there was a church there or if they did, they knew nothing of its mission! Right away, he knew he reason for the church’s decline. The Church body was completely disconnected from its neighbours and immediate community.
