10 years of Churches That Work

Click the links below to read all the stories in the ongoing series launched in 2005.

In a way, we’ve come full circle.
In the 10 years since The Christian Chronicle launched the Churches That Work series, we’ve featured 29 congregations in 24 states.

Steve Cloer, preaching minister for the Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas, the latest church featured, also had a connection to the first congregation we wrote about, the Highland Street Church of Christ in Memphis, Tenn.

In 2005, Cloer was a graduate student at Harding School of Theology working on Highland’s staff. Former Highland preacher Harold Shank, now president of Ohio Valley University, remains a mentor for Cloer.
