An interesting item from “*Church Marketing Sucks*”:http://www.churchmarketingsucks.com/ on November 11:
“National Outreach Convention 2005”:http://www.churchmarketingsucks.com/archives/2005/11/national_outrea.html by Greg Atkinson.
He mentioned a speaker at the convention that caught my attention:
“*They Like Jesus, Not the Church*” by Dan Kimball (Founding Pastor of Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, California)
The concept is that people are open, but it is organized religion is what turns people off.
bq. “We must become listeners of people and watchers of culture.”
I would’ve enjoyed seeing that one.
