'Parachurch organizations...need to regularly evaluate their philosophy and practice in the light of Christ's priority on the church. Similarly, individual Christians, especially those focusing on ministry, should consider whether or not they have slipped into a pattern in which a parachurch group holds more value to them in life and ministry than the local church. No doubt, most parachurch groups are easier to maneuver and get along with than a lot of churches. Yet Jesus sets his affections upon and entrusts the church with his mission in the world. So should we.'
Phil A Newton, The Mentoring Church, p.121.
