The Reformation changed Western civilization. Organizations born during this period reached their peak in the mid-1960s and have been consistently declining in membership and influence. This presentation focuses on recapturing a compelling mission and finding new relevance.

  • Hi Rex. Thank you for the presentation. I will have to check out your book. You may be interested in my presentation, The Reciprocal Church posted here on SlideShare. I would enjoy a conversation if you are interested about improving the vitality and effectiveness of the PCUSA. All the best in the new year.- Kevin

  • PCUSA in transition - wow-sa! There are a couple of personal experiences that resonate negatively with what I assume to be positive images. The blank spaces in the slide share leave me wondering what more there is in between, in the gap.
    Simultaneously I am convinced there needs to be a larger audience for this. However, you (rm) may wish to check out Carol Howard Merritt's blog on tribalchurch.org and realize that our dear ole' PCUSA is very resistant to new leadership and fresh ideas.
