Pastors generally happy with families, finances, preaching. Less with health, administration, world.
Multi-ethnic churches if they are not careful, skew toward white preferences

Separation between poor neighborhoods and rich neighborhoods is occurring

Many of us are putting a lot of stress on communicating Jesus' way in a way that is contextualized to that local culture like a missionary. However, it is sobering to see that so many of our locales are becoming homogeneous. They have either expensive housing with good schools or more affordable housing with schools with poor test scores. So, we need to both minister locally but also be aware that we may need to partner with a church in a poor area.
