A QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE:

“It’s really the focus of the church,” Moody said. “Having a whole bunch of money is not what matters. It’s the intentionality with which the church goes after the lost. If churches are willing to adjust and be flexible to meet the needs of this new generation, they can.”

(Is the focus the requirements of God as stated in the Bible or is it “to adjust and be flexible to meet the needs of this new generation.”? – Richard Duke)
