A church can easily seem more like the mafia than a religious institution. Membership can feel like an "offer you can't refuse" and once you join the Family, good luck getting out alive. We like to joke, but the truth is the church really is designed to run like a family business where each member takes personal ownership in ensuring the whole operation succeeds. Our whole church is spending the month of June discovering what it takes to transform the church from a place we merely visit weekly or passively serve to a Family Business in which we have personal stake.
