ENERGIZING THE CONGREGATION, images that shape your church's ministry. This study suggests that there are many appropriate ways for congregations to be in mission. The authors conclude that churches are revitalized by claiming the symbols that best articulate self-identity. Thus, churches gain the knowledge to build on their strengths and address their weaknesses. Dudley and Johnson describe five images of churches relationships to their communities over time: the survivor, prophet, pillar, pilgrim and servant styles, which are found in a wide variety of congregations and situations.
According to Carl Dudley and Sally Johnson, the discovery of strong and compelling congregational self-images binds church members together and energizes ministry. They describe five images of churches' relationships to their communities over time--the Survivor, Prophet, Pillar, Pilgrim, and Servant styles--thus allowing churches to gain the knowledge necessary to build on their strengths and address their weaknesses.
