Had a cool meeting yesterday with Josiah our “Chief Creative Officer” (and great lover of quotation marks) and Jerry our newly appointed “Rock n Roll Czar” about what we need to do as a team to make actionchurch more effective in sharing the Good News of Jesus with people who “don’t like church”.
Even though most of the “wisdom” and “deep thought” shared by the three of us is Copyrighted, top secret, and “off the record” :-) I wanted to share this one conclusion that I walked away with.
As a church we are starting to make assumptions-and we must stop making them NOW.
We will not assume that “everyone” knows about actionchurch. We need to be more proactive in marketing and spreading that news.
We will not assume that “everyone” who attends on Sunday mornings knows how actionchurch “works”. We need to get back to sharing the story and vision of who we are and where we are heading on a weekly basis.
We will not assume that the things that we have done successfully up to now will work in the future. Nothing is off limits to change except the Gospel and our mission and identity as a church. Everything else is on the table…
I’m really excited about what the future holds for actionchurch…and REALLY thankful for ALL of the great Crew that make it possible.
Can you think of any “assumptions” that we overlooked?
