Congregational-health expert terms churches 'in crisis'
from Associated Baptist Press
During his installation March 18 as president of the Center for Congregational Health, Bill Wilson said churches and ministers are "in crisis." That's a breath-sucking observation from the head of an organization that has dealt with struggling congregations for nearly two decades. "We've got to help congregations figure out how to do church that works," Wilson said during an interview in his office in Winston-Salem, N.C. Wilson said with many churches spinning their wheels in a culture that discounts them because they haven't stayed relevant, "vigilantism" among frustrated members is showing its head.
