An Obligation to Understand Getting to Know the People We Aim to Serve

The Barna Research Group has done significant research into American’s involvement with church and published the results in 2014 in Churchless: Understanding Today’s Unchurched and How to Connect with Them. This quote from the book expresses the heart of a course that I taught for Bethel Seminary on Christianity & culture.

“For the sake of the life-changing message of Jesus, and of the Great Commission to share that message entrusted to us, the Christian community has an obligation to understand the unchurched.” 1

Do you think that the churches that you have been a part of have understood the people in their community who were not a part of the church?
