Church Models for Ministry Across Cultures
Here Mike maintains that all churches belong to one of three basic models of church, though some churches may combine or mix these models. The three broad models are dominant host, bridging and multiethnic churches. There is discussion of autonomous churches and insularity, followed by a closer look at particular expressions of each of the three broad models. Analysis of each model involves case studies and questions. Mike finishes with considering these models in the light of biblical teaching and presents five key propositions.
