The Dallas Fort Worth metroplex has grown from 2.5 million to 6 million since 1995.

In that same time, the 183 churches of Grace Presbytery managed to lose over 10,000 members in that same time frame.

While the population of the United States continues to grow, in that same time the Presbyterian Church (USA) is losing 40,000-50,000 members a year.

And the thing that boggles my mind is we are totally content doing church the same way as we have always done it and we look around wondering why our churches are not growing.

In order for things to change, things must change. And that includes our presuppositions, our modes of operation, our Book of Order, but most of all we must change.
