CFTROU 0042: Creating a Healthy Church Culture – Relationally

In this series we dive into what culture is and why it’s important, especially for churches. Today we are going to do our best to define some of the key characteristics of our Family Church culture. Then we will take a closer look at how those actually play out in the day-to-day. Keep in mind, we haven’t figured it all out! We are just doing our best to identify and articulate what we do to create and maintain a healthy church culture. Every culture takes on the personality and the values of the leader, so stay tuned as we go over the defining values of our culture, the importance of integrity and trust, and what it means to create a culture repentance and love.
