Church for the Rest of Us

A REAL OUTLIER IN APPROACH

One church to watch that is approaching communications quite differently than the rest is Verve Church in Las Vegas.

If anyone knows a thing or two about how to do this, it’s Vince. Their church is in one of the least reached cities in America, Las Vegas. And they’re having success reaching people. It’s been amazing to see.

LEARN FROM THOSE WHO THINK DIFFERENTLY

My friends at Church Fuel have partnered with Vince Antonucci from Verve to launch a new course called Church For the Rest of Us. It’s all about helping you reach the truly lost people in your community.

In fact, pastors like Mark Batterson, Jud Wilhite and Craig Groeschel are endorsing this learning experience and the work Vince has put into this.

CRITICAL WHAT IF’S TO CONSIDER

Jesus said our mission is to seek and save the lost, to make disciples of people who aren’t already believers. That’s a wake up call for today’s church IMHO:

  • What if the church really did discover radically new ways to reach the lost through both missional (relational, serving) AND attractional (church services and events) approaches?
  • What if churches did re-consider their liturgy? What if you were starting from scratch? How would you craft compelling church services and sermons that reach non-Christians?
  • In one of my talks I point out that the red herring for growth is aiming for greater distance or new heights in terms of attendance numbers vs. intentionally working toward PROXIMITY in relationships.  What if pastors were radically challenged to become more effective in relational evangelism, and to equip our people to be as well?
  • If you don’t have a regular stream of visitors, then you need to stop and rethink what you’re doing. What if each church was determined (not just dreamed) to create a culture of grace that attracts non-Christians to your church, and a process of discipleship that grows new Christians in your church?

MAKE IT HAPPEN

I hope you’ll take the opportunity to learn from Vince and the rest of the faculty involved in this program. This is really one of the most creative and innovative programs to train church leaders I’ve seen to date.
