Item description for Rocking the Church Membership Boat: Counting Members or Having Members Who Count by Jan G. Linn...
Overview Linn challenges us to change the way we define church membership and to view it as a spiritual discipline. He introduces us to a new concept of membership, "covenant membership," in which the church and its members are bound together in a relationship of mutual support and responsibility.
Publishers Description Jan Linn challenges the way we think about church membership and proposes that congregations embrace covenant membership, a new, more spiritual approach that calls church members to be more than names on a list.Covenant membership is based on the concept of church membership as a spiritual discipline. Linn examines the role of membership in most congregations, how it got that way, and how covenant membership can create stronger, more involved congregations.
