60 Second Hint: “Every Church is a Sub-Culture”

A NEW FEATURE…”60 SECOND HINT” TO HELP YOU TO A BETTER MINISTRY AND MAYBE LIFE?

Each Church Is Its Own Sub-Culture…Every church has it’s own traditions, words, rules, and personality. Take the time when you arrive at a church to ask questions, learn and don’t just assume things.

Churches like other countries and even families have their own ideas and definitions when it comes to A LOT of things. Just because the denominational name on the front sign is the same as the one you grew up in or your last church, does not mean it is all the same.

THREE QUICK HINTS/HELPS

1. Words mean things, and sometimes they mean different things.  The word “fellowship” can mean two completely different things to you and your church.

2. The “Sacred Cows” sometimes are still giving some “sacred milk” so be aware of what has always been “tradition”, understand who is connected to it and where it came from.

3. People are people are people, take the time to find out the personalities of the leadership, but also of the church as a whole.  Individual personalities are important to know, but the group personality is even more important to know.  It WILL affect so many different things.
