Steve McKinion on the SBC and the GCR

04 May

Here is a sample:

GCR-type SBs see little need for yet another conference on how to grow your church through Sunday School (or Bible study formerly known as SS).  Why are CP dollars, they wonder, supporting local staff who consult with churches when networking is a much more relational, natural, and, it is argued, effective way to brainstorm, inform, and transform.  If these SBs are already building organic networks with other SB churches that help them do the work of the Gospel better, then why give sacrificially to programs and initiatives that have outgrown their usefulness.  Becoming Gospel-driven in their churches has led them to be Gospel-driven in their cooperation.

A movement is afoot among the churches of the convention.  Christians have become consumed by the Gospel and are therefore consumed with the Mission of the Gospel to the nations.  They will no longer support denominational efforts that do not reflect that priority, just as conservative SBs refused to continue to support a denominational bureaucracy that was inconsistent with their view of the Bible.
