According to Carl Dudley and Sally Johnson, the discovery of strong and compelling congregational self-images binds church members together and energizes ministry. They describe five images of churches' relationships to their communities over time--the Survivor, Prophet, Pillar, Pilgrim, and Servant styles--thus allowing churches to gain the knowledge necessary to build on their strengths and address their weaknesses.

Carl S. Dudley was Professor of Church and Community at Hartford Seminary and co-Director of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research in Hartford, Connecticut. Dudley was nationally known for his work in mobilizing local churches for community ministries, and is recognized for his long history of working for such causes as the peace movement, civil rights for the incarcerated, and housing reform. He is the author, co-author, or editor of sixteen books, including, Basic Steps Toward Community Ministry and Carriers of Faith: Lessons from Congregational Studies.


Sally A. Johnson is an associate of the Center for Church and Community Ministries in Chicago and a consulting staff member of the metropolitan Chicago affiliate of Habitat for Humanity.
