Watch “Reaching More People: Toward a Mixed Economy of Church”

Dr. Kenneth H. Carter, bishop of the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church, addresses the challenge of reaching more people. He explains the need to reach the 80 percent of people who are not inclined to find their way to church on their own.  He advocates moving toward a “mixed economy of church” in which the work of strong, vital congregations is enhanced through “fresh expressions” of ministry that take church to people in the neighborhoods, networks, and third places they already inhabit.
