Ministry To The Poor

Mark Junkans

It is also a fear that perhaps the church growth movement has taken our eyes off of necessary ministry to the poor. The homogeneous unit principle says that churches should be planted on the principle that people of similar groups like to be together and therefore churches should pander to the "needs" of these groups in hopes of planting churches among them. It is at least worth thoughtful Biblical reflection that many current church plants are aimed at fairly affluent middle class members instead of those that are considered "down and out."
