The Center for Parish Development:


The mission of the church is to discern, celebrate, and participate in God’s redemptive mission in the world.

The greatest challenge facing churches today is to live missionally – to develop missionary sensitivities, vision, and practices for engaging in God’s mission. The many efforts churches are making to “keeping up” or “survive” are futile if this fundamental challenge is not addressed. This missional reorientation represents a profound learning curve for most churches and a strategic opportunity for church leaders.

The Center for Parish Development exists to provide counsel and resources to facilitate the transformation of churches seeking to discern, celebrate, and participate more fully in God’s mission.
