Social, economic, and cultural forces have turned the religious landscape upside down and have redefined our notion of church, prompting some to describe this phenomenon as a “new reality.” In October 2011, a panel of six experienced Nazarene pastors and church leaders met to share how they re-tooled and re-focused their churches in the midst of sweeping change and created new earmarks for measuring ministry success. This segment focuses on what is meant by “new reality” and the kinds of trends that are changing ministry. USA/Canada Regional Director Bob Broadbooks hosted the discussion, which included Bud Reedy, Max Rodas, Ron Salsbury, David Sharpes, Carla Sunberg, and Gene Tanner. 8 minutes, 59 seconds.
