Abstract
This project addressed the lack of integration of biblical teaching in the work of pastor-church relations, Christian Reformed Church of North America. The goal was to demonstrate and encourage a thorough integration so that organizational wisdom might be informed, anchored and enriched by scriptural teaching. This goal was achieved through program development. The core biblical theme of hospitality was traced through Scripture, and juxtaposed with the four-lens approach of Bolman and Deal's Reframing organizations. Each of these lenses was linked to one of the four New Testament gift passages, and to the biblical theme of hospitality.
