Young church plant needs a building. Older church needs a pastor and hope for the future. So why not merge? It’s an increasingly common scenario in our day. How can you know, then, if this is the right move for your church? What can you learn from other churches that have attempted this process, so fraught with hidden dangers for both sides? I’ve seen it attempted dozens of times, and I’ve even seen it work well in a few cases. Let’s investigate biblical principles and best practices so more of these mergers turn out as win-win situations for the kingdom of God.
On today’s podcast, I talk with two pastors who have walked through successful church mergers.
We talked about their experiences and what they’ve learned about merging churches.
