Let’s briefly consider a modern congregational church and what a typical structure could look like.
There are 4 areas of the local church which can be represented by 4 relationships the church has. They are:
1) Up-Reach: The church reaching up by communicating and giving to God.
2) Down-Reach: God reaching down by communicating and giving to the church.
3) Out-Reach: The church reaching out to those outside the church.
4) In-Reach: The church reaching in to those inside the church.
