  • Reciprocity and Social Capital You! Me Social Network It’s not about ME. It’s all about YOU! For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Numbers 35.34 “Donʼt desecrate the land in which you live. I live here too —I, GOD, live in the same neighborhood with the People of Israel.” For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Isaiah 49.6 He says, “But thatʼs not a big enough job for my servant— just to recover the tribes of Jacob, merely to round up the strays of Israel. Iʼm setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!” For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Jeremiah 29.7   “Make yourselves at home there and work for the countryʼs welfare.  “Pray for Babylonʼs well-being. If things go well for Babylon, things will go well for you.” For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Romans 15.26-27 The Greeks—all the way from the Macedonians in the north to the Achaians in the south—decided they wanted to take up a collection for the poor among the believers in Jerusalem. They were happy to do this, but it was also their duty. Seeing that they got in on all the spiritual gifts that flowed out of the Jerusalem community so generously, it is only right that they do what they can to relieve their poverty. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture 1Corinthians 9.9-11 Moses wrote, “Donʼt muzzle an ox to keep it from eating the grain when itʼs threshing.” Do you think Mosesʼ primary concern was the care of farm animals? Donʼt you think his concern extends to us? Of course. Farmers plow and thresh expecting something when the crop comes in. So if we have planted spiritual seed among you, is it out of line to expect a meal or two from you? For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Galatians 6.6   Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self- sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Galatians 6.7-8 Donʼt be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God! — harvests a crop of weeds. All heʼll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting Godʼs Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Reciprocity in Scripture Galatians 6.9 So letʼs not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we donʼt give up, or quit. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .

  • Missional Reciprocity Opportunity For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Missional Reciprocity Opportunity Decades ago, it was clear that any church in the community added value to the community that could be measured as social capital. Tax exemption can only be understood in light of the principle of reciprocity. For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Missional Reciprocity Opportunity It is a fair question to ask our congregations, “In what ways does the community receive a reciprocal value in services equal to the “gift” of property tax relief from the municipalities?” This is the opportunity! For more information about the Reciprocal Church, please contact the author, Dr. Kevin Yoho kevin@newarkpresbytery.org .
  • Missional Reciprocity Opportunity Most congregations return something to the community. The missional challenge is to invite every congregation to be accountable in their ministry and mission to give, in a reciprocal way, to their own community.

  • Where Did The Social Capital Go? The research of Dr. Robert Putnam, Harvard University, helps us quantify forty years of social capital in North America in his two best sellers, Bowling Alone (2001) and Better Together (2004).

  • Framework for Missional Effectiveness The membership decline of volunteer associations (such as the church) correlates to their reduced community involvement, caused by a withdrawal of social capital.
