Christian Ed. and the 21st Century Church

I agree it is not an either/or thing Equipping and Evangelizing definitely flow together. However, do you see any connection between the HUGE investment our denomination has made in Christian Education over the years and the fact that we suck at evangelism? If they really flow so well together why will we, very likely, cease to exist as a denomination in the next 40 years?
Maybe there isn’t a connection between the two but I can’t help but wonder. I am not saying we should drop Christian Ed all together (I haven’t) but somewhere along the way I think we lost the balance and the rising cost is pushing us to even more imbalance and instead of letting go we cling to it like a lucky rabbit’s foot that will save our necks…
