MS2-1:  Discover 
Cultural Compatibility

Congregational Cultural Analysis

The purpose of this task is to assist congregations in discovering the cultural distance between them and community cultural groups.  A research report uses the results of a survey of the congregation to evaluate the compatibility of the church with groups in the community. The church identifies the cultural groups it can reach and those that require cultural adaptation. 




Workshop Key Question

If you reach a particular group, will you be able to disciple them and incorporate them into your congregation?
