Is The Church A Family Of Families – Part 2
Perhaps it will be helpful to describe the origin of the term ‘family of families’ within the GFBC context. As we were meeting to form the core group that would ultimately plant GFBC, we had a number of discussions about the distinctives of the new work. During that discussion, the term ‘corporate church’ was used frequently to describe the neo-traditional model (corporate church is much easier to say and explain). In an effort to explain the distinction, we asked the question, “Is the church a corporation, or is it more like a family of families?” It was from this discussion that the term ‘family of families’ was born.
