Church DNA & Culture Flowchart
How are decisions made in your church, or for your new church plant?
What Bible translation will you use?
How will the meeting space be arranged?
What kind of coffee will be served?
And music! Will you have any? How much? What type?
Every church has DNA and a unique culture that shape the way decisions are made. Sometimes “We’ve always done it that way” trumps any other reason in determining the shape of our life together in church!
This tool aims to help you understand your DNA and your culture, and to enable you to make mission-oriented decisions.
This completed sheet is a worked example. The First, Second, and Third Order Issues may be different in your context. There is also a blank worksheet available for you to complete with your leaders, teams and members.
