Wow… finally, the last of the Catalyst West Forgotten series. I’m ready to talk about something else, as I’m sure you are as well.
I’ve got to tell you though, Craig Groeschel in particular impressed me more than any other. I really believe that I’ve saved the best for last. Then again, it could just have been because I just finished reading ‘Crazy Love’ by Francis Chan and ‘The Barbarian Way’ by Erwin McManus. Here’s what I mean….
I was taught and I thought the Church was supposed to be a safe place.
It’s time for the Church to become dangerous again!
Let the word drive the creativity, not the other way around.
Don’t trust the package… Trust the power of God.
I was taught and I thought ‘build the Church’.
Build the Kingdom!
Be a Kingdom Player…
Be good at what you do, not what others do!
Unite the Church.
I was taught and I thought that success was only found in the big numbers.
Get the right people doing the right thing! Even if your numbers decrease.
Don’t blame yourself for the decline or you’ll be tempted to take credit for the increase.
3 types of Christians in our Churches today… We want to get people to line 3
1. I believe enough to benefit
2. I believe enough to contribute comfortably
3. I believe enough to give my life
What kind of message am I preaching?
