25 Nov More Thoughts on Momentum
Steve Dennie, Communications Director
A few days ago, I mentioned something Andy Stanley said concerning momentum. Here’s another one of his thoughts.
In the church world, we put up with lack of momentum as long as we can still pay the bills.
Now there’s a sad thought. “I am financially viable, therefore I exist.” Is your church in that boat?
Too many churches choose to limp along, keeping the doors open, as long as they can pay the bills. The only momentum is downward. Meanwhile, they shoo away opportunities which would be to their long-term good–like merging with a nearby church. Such a move would make both churches stronger. No longer stuck in survival mode, they could devote resources to ministry.
