The Committee Teaching Series

Free Course

Chuck Knows Church: The Committee is a 16-session video teaching series designed to examine the struggles congregations face as they look toward a preferred future. Using real-world topics, The Committee is sure to open discussion in your congregation.

The series follows Park Grove Community Church, a fictional urban U.S. congregation, as it is faced with a difficult decision: should it close? Things are so bad that a retired pastor didn’t show up to help them decide the congregation’s future – so it’s up to the last remaining members to discover it for themselves.

Although some of the characters and situations are simplified to accommodate the format, they may feel familiar. Your congregation may not be facing closure, may have a wonderful pastor, and be a vital and growing church. However, all congregations face the issues addressed in The Committee at some point.
