The Church and Fighting Over Change

Many people are uncomfortable with the words change and church being in the same sentence. Some people are comfortable with the way things are, and don’t want anyone changing things up. Many Christians want things only done one way. Because of this many people have often come to blows over change in the church. Some want to change everything. Some want to change nothing. There must be balance. (And then there are others who are content doing nothing but sitting back and complaining.)

Actually, change is inevitable. In just the past 10 years, you and I have changed physically, emotionally and spiritually. Your hair has changed. Your weight has changed. Your furniture has been moved. You are probably driving a different car. You probably now carry a cellular phone that you didn’t have 10 years ago. Your life and mine is full of changes. Not many things actually stay the same.

The same is true with the church. Change is inevitable. And for the church to grow and mature, it must change & make changes with the times. If we’re not willing to change, we’re not going to grow. But understand not all change is good. There are certain things that shouldn’t ever change. Our problem is figuring out what we can change and what we shouldn’t change. We sure don’t want to all change in an area God doesn’t want us to change. So what things are changeable and what things shouldn’t be changed?

1. Things that are Changeless in the church…

  • The Master is Changeless (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus should always be at the center of everything we do. Jesus needs to be the focus of the church. We need to strive to be like him, serve like him and love like him. Don’t change Jesus.

  • The Message is Changeless (John 3:16). Our message must be the gospel. The message must be that eternal life is available for everyone. Don’t ever allow the message to change.

  • The Mission is Changeless (Matthew 28:18-20). The great commission wasn’t the great suggestion. It isn’t an elective. Jesus said our mission is … go. Let’s don’t change the mission of the church.

2. Things that are Changeable in the church…

  • Our Methods should Change (1 Corinthians 9:20-22). We can’t always keep doing the same things the same way. I know that the Gospel Meetings of old that were used for reaching out to the community don’t work here like they used to. So we’ve had to change our “methods” of outreach. We’ve replaced Gospel Meetings with Friends Day and other community outreach events. Don’t be afraid to change methods for outreach, because the 7 last words of a dying church are, “We never did it that way before.”

  • Our Mindset should Change (Philippians 2:5). Our mindset needs to change to be more like Jesus’ every day. Jesus was a giver and a servant, and that’s the mindset we should have. Every person has a gift that God wants them to use to show others Christ. We need to become people who aren’t afraid to wash feet and get our fingernails dirty. Our mindset is how we think, and we need to get off our rear-ends and be more servant oriented like our Savior. Don’t be afraid to change your mindset.

  • Our Ministries should Change (Acts 10:1-48). Who are you ministering to? Jesus ministered to those who no one else would. He ministered to the sinner, the tax collector, the prostitute and the less fortunate. How many times do we overlook the drug addict, the homeless and the divorcee to reach out to the new middle class family that moved into town? It’s time we start looking for the ones that Jesus would look for. We definitely need to change our ministries.

It’s been said there are 3 kinds of people in a church: Risk Takers, Care Takers and Undertakers.

  • Risk-takers are willing to try something different to reach more people with the message of Jesus.
  • Care-takers are just satisfied doing what they’ve always done. Don’t stir the water and leave things just as they are.
  • In the last 100 years more churches have closed than opened. We don’t need more undertakers .

What kind of “taker” will you be? Hopefully someone who’s not afraid of change. Hopefully you’ll be a “risk-taker” for Jesus.

    I am a new believer. I’m glad that the church I attend has made some changes in its methods, mindset, and ministries. It made it possible for me to make some changes in my own life and learn to come to Christ.

    It just took one person to reach out and invite me in. I just needed to know that I was welcome and wanted. I’m thankful for change. It saved me.

  2. Ancient Wanderer says:

    trey-
    I think most of what we see as ‘things that need to change’ are simply things we need to do differently because we are not being like JESUS.

    I think my only ‘thing’ about change is that so much of what we show as proof of change is not within our power. There is a difference between “things change” and me “changing things”.

    I think ‘things being different’ and ‘change’ are sometimes confused.

    Thanks for making me think about this :)

    Anonymous … I’m very glad someone can along and reached out to you. I’m sure it’s a powerful story. I’m glad that there was a person and a church like that in your life. It makes my heart feel good to hear stories like yours.

    Ancient … you said, “I think my only ‘thing’ about change is that so much of what we show as proof of change is not within our power. There is a difference between “things change” and me “changing things”.”

    I say a very LOUD amen to that. Excellent way to simplify it.

  4. Stachia says:

    I agree that change is good, however, that was not always what I believed. I resisted change for a really long time but over the last 10 years there have been some major changes in my life and looking back I believe that I have grown from those changes or at least I hope have. I also realize that there are things that I still need to change in order to grow more. Stach

  5. Neva says:

    You preached that, right?
    Great post!!! That will preach!!

    Being a Christian is all about change and since the church is made up of Christians, we should be able to change, too. As long as our goal of pleasing God, (and by the way, He gets to decide what pleases Him, we don’t) then we need to become all things to all men.
    I loved the post.

  6. The Preacher's Household: says:

    Something that has changed my mindset has to do with what anomyous said about one person inviting and welcoming. A friend of mine told me that she felt she had to call a member and ask if she could come to church every Sunday. She had not internalyzed that the offer was ongoing. She eventually got tired of asking permission and stopped going.
    That was so sad to me because I thought of all the people I had not continued to ask and the ones that just slipped away.

    Maybe one of the ways churches can change is to help incorpate anyone that comes through the door in some small way so they immediately feel part of the group.

    I can certainly understand the big difference aw was talking about. We have tried to revive our churches trying to encourage things to change. But too often, I lose patients when I realize it is me trying to change things. (Infact, my current problem is, I can change a diaper, but I can’t seem to get things to change to a potty trained status. Apply that to your work however you want, but I don’t think bribes and spankings are very effective in church work either.)

    Trey,

    Change makes me nervous, I’ll be the first to admit it. My thoughts about change in the church is along as its a God- approved changed and not a people-approved change then it’s ok with me.

    Good post.

  8. Gallagher says:

    Good thoughts for keeping me up at night. Excellent three categories of people.

    I preceive one reason we hate to change is our personal comfort level. We can become so accustomed to a variety of things, we want to stay where we are lest we venture out into the world.

    ALso, change takes communication. For changes to happen we must communicate with (1) ourselves, (2) each other and (3) we must communicate with God.

    Just my two cents…

    Great post.

  9. Trey Morgan says:

    Paula, I understand your concerns about change. They make me nervous too. I’m not a “change guy” for the sake of changing things. But I am willing to change to reach out to others in new and fresh ways.

    Much like the Christian Chronicle’s new article, as a brotherhood, we are just not growing. I think we’re behind on searching for reasons why. And way to reach out.

  10. Trey Morgan says:

    Gallaghr … As for communication that may be the key to making change happen smoothly. I know of a church not far from here where a few of the men (not elders) decided on their own to let the preacher go. They didn’t communicate this with the church or others. They just took it upon themselves to do it.

    I honestly don’t know the whole story, but something didn’t seem right.

  11. The Preacher's Household: says:

    Trey,

    I recently heard about a church that was serving beer at thier functions (the details were not provided). The news person that was reporting this was asking the thoughts of the general public. This kind of change is what some think of when the subject is brought up, crazy things that may not be blessed by God.

    You brougth up a different category as well, those things that need to change. I will amen the need for more change in my life and in the lives of most christians I know.

    Maybe that oft printed prayer would apply here. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things that I can and the wisdom to know th difference.

    Maybe we need to pray for wisdom more.

    This is Anonymous again.

    Kathy was exactly right when she said “Maybe one of the ways churches can change is to help incorpate anyone that comes through the door in some small way so they immediately feel part of the group.”

    Sometimes your BIGGEST risk taker is the person who just walked into your church for the first time. Definately, make them feel welcome. Just talk to them. Hopefully, your church is about kindness and compassion. Show them. Make them want to have what you have.

    Take it even one step further – don’t wait for the new person to come through the door, go out and find them and invite them in. So many people fall through the cracks because they are just average people. On the surface, they appear to have it altogether. But dig deeper and get to really know people. You’ll find a lot of people in need of God and a lot of people who either don’t know it, or they don’t know how to begin a relationship with God. Some people are more than willing, they just feel so far from God they don’t know where to begin.
    Help them make that first big step into your church. Continue to touch base with them each time they return. Eventually they will become more comfortable with attending. They may even begin to look forward to it. A positive change is soon to follow.

  13. Trey Morgan says:

    Anonymous,

    Glad to have you “hanging out” here. You’ve got some great thoughts and ideas, and I appreciate you sharing them with us.

    Those new people, new Christians, or new visitors that come need to feel welcome and involved. The sooner you get people involved the better. And like you said, they CAN do things that we often think can’t be done.

    It’s kind of like little David the giant slayer. When he showed up at the battle with the Philistines he didn’t KNOW he couldn’t beat Goliath. So he did.

    We recently had a new person come in and ask about doing something and everyone said, “Doesn’t he know that can’t be done? Everyone’s tried it and it can’t be done.” Well to make a long story short … No one told the new guy it couldn’t be done and guess what … yea, he did it. Made it look easy.

    And embarrassingly I was one of the ones standing over in the corner saying, “Doesn’t he know we’ve never done it that way before?”

    Ooops.

    Great thought Annon. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, and James, beer in church? WHAT? That’s crazy.

  14. DJG says:

    Hey Trey,
    Thanks for stopping by my slice of blog-land. Interesting that I should come here on a day that this is your topic. I have been in a constant state of unrest about the way we “do church” for over a year now. Unlike Paula, I love change, but not just for the sake of change…for the sake of challenge!

    I am excited about anonymous and their positive experience, but I am afraid that is the exception. We truly have been too busy being “care-takers” and taking care of our own that we have forgotten how to reach out to others. Even this story bothers me some….it is still “come and see” and I think Jesus was about “going and getting”…

    Thanks for the post…I will be back.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Trey,

    Some may fear change because they see “change” in the same light as “compromise”, which is seen as evil.

    I’ve often felt that changes of the right kind will make the church more “user friendly” shall we say. I have a member who has a job that requires him to work seven days a week with fairly long hours each day, and he feels guilty about not making each service. What a shame our tradition of 2 required Lord’s Day services makes it a difficult situation for him, because if he could make even one, he’d still feel guilty. Some change, of the right kind, is good and prudent. I enjoy your blog.

  16. Trey Morgan says:

    DJG … I agree, I think we have more caretakers than risktakers … but I think I see that changing.

    Most, even me, are more comfortable always keeping things like they are. It moves us out of our comfort zone to try new things. I think the 10 talent man was a risk taker … and the one talent man a caretaker. Make sense?

  17. Angie says:

    Hi Trey! What a fun find your blog is! Thanks for taking the initiative to help our blog paths cross. Just from reading through some of your most recent posts, I can tell I’m in for some blessing!

    It’s really, really refreshing to see someone give change a good name! So many advocates of change (for good and right reasons) give it such a bad name b/c of their cynical and arrogant attitudes. I’ll be the first to say that our Jesus was quite firm and outright shocking when He turned over tables in the temple while defending the unchangables… But everything was covered in such love!

    Looking forward to sharing more of this adventure in Christ with you, new friend!

  18. Angie says:

    Trey, Tim Rush just clued me in that you and Bruce are brothers! Bruce and I were in Portugal together for a chunk of time, and Amanda was one of my dearest friends in Lubbock days – though I’m very sad to say I’m rotten at keeping in touch & have lost touch with them over the years.

    Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve googled them several times to see if maybe they had a blog or something online, but came up empty. The next time you’re in touch w/them, would you pass on my e-mail addy? I’d love to re-connect with them!

    keepintouchwithangie@yahoo.com

    Thanks, man.

    It’s great to know that you are brothers. Now I have a bit of an idea of what you’ve had to put up with and how that’s contributed to making you the fella you are now!

    Grace and peace to you!

  19. Royce Ogle says:

    Much of what we do habitually can be done with little or no faith. We humans are drawn to things that are comfortable and easy. Most of us even sit in the very same pew, in the same spot, week after week.

    Perhaps a good exercise might be for us to ask ourselves this question. What am I, and my congregation doing that could not be done if God suddenly died? I fear that much of our activity requires little of His involvement.

    We should change that!

    Grace and Peace,
    Royce Ogle

    If the question mark on your last comment to me was because you would like more details look at our blog. I have a link there.

  21. Trey Morgan says:

    Angie … thanks for coming by … I remember you now. Bruce has talked about you. I called him tonight and he was excited to hear about you. He gets on the blog pretty regularly, but he’s too shy to comment(I’m trying to drag him out with this comment). He said he’d get your address and give you a yell.

    Hopefully you’ll hear from him soon. They are doing well in Juneau AK.

    Thanks again for stopping by.

  22. Trey Morgan says:

    Royce … I’m honored you stopped by and commented. I enjoy your blog very much. Thanks for coming by.

    James – No question mark for you. It was more of an amazement thing. Nothing suprises me anymore. I was a little floored.

  23. Messianic Gentile says:

    Trey,

    I am all about CHANGE. I am what many call a CHANGE AGENT, though I would prefer the label AGENT OF NEW CREATION, if I could choose one. I don’t dither over what should stay the same etc, there is too much that is changing, will change and cannot be stopped to worry about the minors.

    The church is dying. We are in the death throes now. It is happening as a judgment of God, and we cannot stop it. Our idolatry has warranted it. The modern western church is a puppet of the western economic empire. (As to avoid unpacking that all day, check out the following book: Colossians Remixed by Walsh and Keesmaat (I have blogged on it elsewhere too).)

    How about for starters, we in the church sell everything we own and give it to the church and/or the poor? Why has no one mentioned that as a needed change? Are we the Body of Christ or some dull witless quasi-spiritual Sunday breakfast club? I really can’t believe people who say they love that. That is warped. It is self-deceiving. And so often, the preacher is the only person to speak a fresh word in these services, and even then he too, in many cases, recycles sermons. I mean brother Doe will utter the same words over the lords snack before you break a pinch off of a cracker that was baked in a mass cracker producing oven in Brooklyn, NY as he uttered last time it was his turn to speak. The preacher, if he is serious, which God bless them usually they are –at least early in their careers – will exegete, study and plan a fresh word for Sunday. He will care for the widows and orphans; he will clean and repair the place; he will guard secret shames that come out in the confidence of pastoral counseling and really pray for those in this flock and then he will get fired and run out of town for all this trouble by the very people CLAIMING to be the church. Hogwash! And that is presuming the preacher really does those things and is not preaching #17 this week or some sermon he ripped off from the internet or a book.

    And then there is the lords snack. See my post here (http://bedevilingdetails.blogspot.com/2006/11/communion-cafe-church-is-only.html) for more thoughts on that. What a mockery of the King’s Table we make week after week. A pinch of cracker? In all my life, I have yet to worship in a church where someone takes the time to lovingly bake the bread. I know it happens in some places, but I have never participated in that. And why does it not even occur to anyone? Convenience? That is something the western economic empire sells to consumers, and has nothing to do with church.

    I think we need to chuck the whole idea of “pattern” as we currently use it in the Church of Christ. You can study it all day, as we pursue it, and not find an ounce of love or life in it. It is an idol. Anything you can make that has no God Breathed Spirit in it, can be an idol when you begin to worship it, take your identity from it and cling to it for all you are worth. Rather, we need to “be the Body of Christ.” I have room for growth here myself, but to deny this is bunk. The world is dying around us and historically we have focused entirely on what goes on between our walls. Thank goodness we don’t have a piano. The Bible does not care one way or the other about pianos! Never mentions them. But we hang soooooooo much on what the Bible does not say! As if we are making a cake. Must follow the recipe. It calls for eggs, but not peanut butter. God did not say peanut butter, so whether you like it or not, you will burn in Hell for eternity if you put peanut butter in his cake! And, oh yeah, because He loves you. (%$*&^!)

    We have misconstrued what the Body of Christ is. It is not something WE can make, build, duplicate or replicate. That would at best be a clone! Call her Dolly. In Genesis 1 & 3, God creates a human being. This human is partly earth and partly heaven. They are the image of God. In 2:7, God blows His Spirit into the form and it comes alive. (Trey, you recently read Wright’s Simply Christian –recall how he discusses that in ancient times when one king conquers another, he sets up statues of himself in the foreign land so that the newly conquered people will know who is in charge now. Well the humans of Genesis 1 & 3 are his statues, only they have Spirit in them, and they are not statues. They are far far more than that. But they are image bearers all the same.) In the opening scenes of ACTS, the body is formed and gathered in a room when a mighty wind/breath/spirit comes rushing in on them. The image bearer comes alive once again. You cannot duplicate this or follow a recipe or pattern and achieve this! And if you do, Habakkuk convicts you because your idol has no spirit, no breath, within it.

    Thus, I see the days of the modern western church coming to an end. Change is inevitable. And needed. And all the clinging to the old will only make your judgment that much harder. And Yes it is what God wants. I would prefer it if I had never taken the red pill. But the world the modern west has constructed and the “church” it has puppeted are all crashing down. Even several of your commentators here have suggested that they are more down with change now than they were just a few years ago. Guess what? You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. And in ten more years, you will be surprised that you resisted as much as you do now.

    Dad and I were just discussing this week how Jesus, rather than gathering himself up for a sleepy song and prayer service once (or three times) a week in seclusion of a “church building” is out leading a campaign for the end of the world as we know it every day. We are considering a new movement we call “Tailgating with Jesus.” Bringing food onto the mean streets in the back of my truck, preaching there and rallying the dry bones of the valley to come together with the word of God, to take on FLESH and SPIRIT and stand as an exceedingly great ARMY.

    Does any of that sound like “church” where you go? Which parts?

    Thanks for posting. I think I will begin posting too.

    You are a gracious host, Trey. I do not wish to be difficult. But I operate in a different realm. I invite you and your readers to check it out.

    Many blessings…

  24. Liz Moore says:

    Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog. And I say amen to your post. Change for the sake of change is never good. But if we are following the bible and listening to Jesus, we are going to be changing every day. Growth requires change. And if we are growing we are going to be changing to look and smell more like Him every day.

  25. Agent B says:

    Man…no offense but…replacing gospel meetings with “Friends Day” doesn’t sound too change-ish.

  26. Trey Morgan says:

    MG …

    I’m always honored when you visit my blog. I like the way you challenge my thinking and my comfort zone. I’m glad you feel comfortable enough to share what’s on you heart. Although I’m not sure we see eye to eye on everything I really love your heart and your sinserity.

    While, I’m still digesting your last post. I still thing we may see more eye to eye on things than you think.

    I love your idea of “tailgating with Jesus.” I think that is exactly something Jesus would have done. I know many who have tried outreach just like that. I’ve had a friend that has for years taken socks and clothes (in the winter) to the homeless living in a certain area in Amarillo. It’s a blessing to hear of his ministry. When he comes to their bridge on Wednesdays bringing sandwiches and clothes … they always welcome him as the “sock man.” Too cool.

    Yes, I have enjoyed Wright’s book, “Simply Christian.” Can’t wait to read it a second time. Extremely challenging.

    Blessings …

  27. Trey Morgan says:

    agent b … simply an example.

  28. The Preacher's Household: says:

    In looking at the comments on this post I had a thought come to mind. I have been seen as a “change agent” for sometime, although I would not prefer that tag. I preached a sermon 13 years ago. It was part of a series looking at the life of David. In 1 Chronicles 13 there is an incident as the men are moving the Ark of the Covenant specifically in verse 9. Uzzah is struck dead. Point one of my two point sermon is ‘God has a way He wants things done’. Point two, ‘When we do things God’s way it might not always look like others expect & we can have a good time’ (1 Chronicles 15:13-29). Some who want change want to throw the baby out with the bath-water. There are standards & patterns.

    I heard an example of this recently. The person was speaking of a school in which a teacher could be punished for challenging a student who said two plus two was five. The observation was made, “in some other possible reality, two plus two might equal five”. I understand thinking outside the box. Some of the best developments of modern time came from thinking outside the box. But two plus two is four!

    Thinking outside the box makes us uncomfortable. An example that comes to mind is the “The Lord’s Snack”. I agree we need to work more toward the communion it was designed to be. I will be glad to write more at a different time, maybe on our blog, about my efforts. Short course, The focus is not on the peripherals. The focus is on the body and the blood. The supper was instituted in the midst of a meal and was carried on in Corinth in the context of a meal. The other food there was peripheral. We can, and maybe should, have other food but it is not the point!

    Thank you for the opportunity to think this through out loud with others.

    James

  29. Trey Morgan says:

    James, excellent thoughts here. We ARE guilty of not spending enough time on communion. It needs to be a bigger part of our services. Or, let me put it this way. You can put too much emphasis on it. I also agree that communion is a heart thing. All ways has been. People have argued for years about, should we break the bread in to pieces before we pass it, should we have one cup or divide it into many, should the bread be matzio crackers (which I personally think are gross tasting) or real bread, should the wine be real wine or just any kind of “fruit of the vine,” should it be red grape juice or white grape juice, and should we be sad and tearful like a funeral or happy and joyful like it’s a celebration. The debates have always been there, but I think it all goes back to the heart thing. It wasn’t about room, food, the way it was broken or passed, it was about the remembrance. It was about the relationships. It’s all about the sacrifice not size of the bread. When we make the focus the peripheral we miss the whole point of the Lord’s Supper.

    We could go on forever on this thought. You’re right this would make a great post.

  30. Messianic Gentile says:

    Thanks for the gracious response and engagement. That is important, and I appreciate it. May we continue a spirit of love and care with each other here. I am not doubting it, actually, but reinforcing it all the same. I am blessed by the discussion, and I hope others are too.

    That said (and NOT to undercut it a bit) I disagree with the assessments made here completely. I believe we need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. I do not wish to find balance in my idol worship, I seek to put a stop to it all together. I am not challenging “comfort zones,” I am obliterating them. Why do you need comfort in church? How did it become a criteria for deciding where to fellowship? We are in the cross-bearing business. There is not a box to think outside of.

    To say that the “The supper was instituted in the midst of a meal…” is a HUGE understatement. Pilgrims the world over have descended on Jerusalem for the Great Passover Feast! The city is bursting at the seams with people who have come to PARTY! To there for conclude that “The focus is not on the peripherals” is beside the point. It is true, but it does not matter. What matters is that it is a celebration, a party, a foretaste of the Great Eschatological Banquet. And Jesus gives us the foretaste in numerous places with fishes and loaves and wine etc. This kind of reduction is a crime. If you throw a party for me and only sit in silence avoiding eye contact with others, taking a pinch of cracker and a sip of juice from a thimble, don’t be surprised if I don’t come. And when you consider this meal as the centerpiece of the connection of Heaven and Earth, the centerpiece of your worship to God, as vital to your nourishment as a human being and the well being of all of creation, then such a reduction is an insult. Think about it.

    And then to say that it “all goes back to a heart thing” makes it sound like that reducing it is the right thing to do. But I would challenge that. I think if you reduce it you have shown that your heart is not really in it after all. Again, if you throw me a party like that, I would think you have a lot of something else invested (ie fear) in my party than your heart.

    And why is it held in a building at all? Shouldn’t our image bearing be displayed upon the creation? And if you hide it under a bushel, reduce it to the somber going-through-the-motions, non-peripheral-“heart thing” that the CoC has traditionally done, AND then condemn others for not doing it this way weekly (AS WE HAVE TRADITIONALLY DONE for generations), then why would you expect it to have any effect on the fallen world? Shouldn’t we not be surprised that it goes IGNORED by those outside? And Shouldn’t it be one of the biggest things to come up for discussion on a post like this from just about every reader?

    I do not claim to have all the answers. Really, I don’t. But to turn a blind eye to these kind of questions or try to tame them is a serious mistake. They need to be addressed badly.

    Again, thanks for dealing with me graciously. It is appreciated. I wrestle with these things, I am asking you to as well.

    Many blessings…

    Trey,

    By the way, I have reinvested this discussion on my blog. If you wish to pursue it more, I have opened it there to hopefully attract some other view points as well.

I am a Christian husband and father, who moonlights as the minister for the church of Christ in Childress, Texas. My wife Lea and I have been married for 25 years. We are doing our best to raise our 4 boys, who are all growing up way too fast.
