Paper: Is there room in the inn?

Is There Room in the Inn?
A Systems Theory Perspective on Congregational Capacities
for Mission and the Matter of Sociological Space
Edward R. Treat
This paper seeks to identify attitudes and expectations among three groups within the
congregation—pastors, key leaders, and regular members—around the issue of mission,
evangelism, and church growth. It particular focuses on what is required for a congregation to grow beyond its limits of just being a closed friendly family.
