Church split cohabitation & Pastoral panty raids

Today marks the release of the May edition of Ministry Briefing. This month’s edition covers approximately 175 articles, studies, news stories, and blog posts that we think are helpful for church leaders to read. In honor of today’s release, we thought we would share some of our favorite stories from this month’s edition of Ministry Briefing:

  • Game Show Network’s new show could put old church ladies out of business. “It Takes a Church” looks to celebrate the awkward tradition of married churchgoers matching up their single friends with their future mate.
  • Teens watching more mobile video than their older peers. A growing trend for church leaders to be watching for within the rising generation.
  • Divided church shares worship space. A presbyterian church, split on denominational affiliation, has found a way to work together and share resources despite their differences.
  • News of the weird: Pastor panty raid? Nigerian pastor steals a woman’s underwear in order to pray for her.

Check out more stories like these in May’s edition of Ministry Briefing!
