Eric L.

Losing churches to developers and the like is quite frustrating. I didn't read the articles yet, but on a micro-level, I think members of these churches don't know what to do or they have been doing the same thing for years and get stuck. Another issue I think is that many members are resistant to change. People can get territorial, especially when it comes to "their" ministry. Just two cents worth.


I think your insights are right on target, Eric. Being stuck, resisting change, unaware of options and an unwillingness to release control can be factors that keep a church from releasing things. Another factor can be the interests and ownership of a denominational entity that is not local and views the property as a commodity to liquidate for ministry in other geographic areas.
