The Internet's 1st Site for Integrating Ecclesiology & Body Anatomy in Order to Develop Healthier Churches & Clergy.


John Marshall Crowe,  B.A., M.Div., D.Min.

One day, Jon Amos visited my site over 100 times in one day. He wrote the following complimentary summary of this web site and sent it to me.

Some fascinating, creative work here by the Rev. Dr. John M. Crowe (UMC) applying the language of anatomy & physiology to ecclesiology & interacting with family systems theory along the way.

Lots of other resources on his site regarding clergy wellness, mental health & congregational harmony - as well as the corresponding lack thereof in each of these areas - among other things. I also appreciated his brief piece on "Practical Self-Defense for the Congregation."

His review also referenced The Church Anatomy page on this site.

 Jon gave me his permission to post this complimentary summary here. I appreciate his comments very much.

The foundation for this site builds upon my dissertation.
