Pastor, author and speaker Jim Elliff, gives eight ways the average church member can help a struggling church. "It is true that just a few can make such a difference," he says.
PARKVILLE, Mo. (BP)--For some reason unknown to humankind, my older brother once got to play golf on the distinguished Augusta National golf course ...

PARKVILLE, Mo. (BP)--Out of Southern Baptist's 16,287,494 members, only 6,024,289, or 37 percent, on average, show up for their church’s primary meeting, according to statistics from LifeWay Christian Resources.
