Not to go too far into the class and bore you with things that you may not care about (but probably should...but not here in this blog,) let me just say that one of the things we talked about in class was the reality of the church being the agent through whom God wants to move to reach a broken world. However, too often we are more of a distraction to an authentic move of God than an asset. One of these reasons is the unfortunate reality that we focus on things many times that just aren't all that important.
So here is the thought I would like for you to consider and weigh in on:
Realizing we have a clean slate of a new church plant to work with...what are the top 5 things you think are most vital to a church being used to affect positive change in a community? There are no right or wrong answers here but, the ones in which you can provide historical or biblical precedent for might just get you some bonus points with Jesus or maybe even an extra room in your mansion in heaven...I'll have to see what I can do about that.
What are your thoughts???
