Whether you are a part of a corporation church where the pastor operates as a CEO or a university church where the pastor is the “professor,” Gene Mims will help you adjust your style to the church culture you serve. Gene Mims puts seven contemporary church experiences into context so readers can identify and adjust one’s own style to the church instead of expecting the church to adjust to your style. The seven churches discussed are: the university church (where the key is instruction and the pastor operates as professor), the arena church (where the key is experience and the pastor is a performer), the corporation church (where the key is control and the pastor is the CEO), the machine church (where the key is activity and the pastor operates as the manager), the family chapel (where the key is relationships with the pastor as chaplain), the legacy church (where the key is the past and the pastor is curator), and the community center church (where the church ten! or is issues-based and the pastor is the prophet).
