How do 'para-church' organizations fit within the Body of Christ? I am thinking in particular about organizations such as pregnancy resource centers, that aren't connected to any particular local church but are ran through a board of directors. I am especially interested in hearing the views of pastors regarding Christians serving in ministries that are outside local church authority structures. I do understand that the Christian's primary service is within the local church body first. I am just not sure of what is Biblical regarding service in 'para-church' ministries.
