Skin in the game
Ministry to affluence.. is hard.
Hypothesis: Affluent americans will commit only when they are forced to... in a currency/model that they are accustomed to... customer supplier model generates choice and control..
Volunteerism and traditional ministry models do not work to the larger affluent populations People will ask "whats in it for me" and their consumer approach will force constant turnover.. Community ministries and organizations must do a better job of what they offer.. People don't just accept anymore..
Da capo can provide ministry via music.. and accountability via cost and financial committment..
