If you’re reading this I am happy to personally, though electronically, welcome you to the blog. Today I just have one question for you and would greatly appreciate you leaving your answer in the comments section. So get comfortable, take a deep breath, and here we go…

What one thing would you like to see MORE of at the church you attend?

    I would like to see more nomadic activities, for instance, take Invisible children and their roadies program. Imagine a roadies missions team. Just more of a nomadic mentality of church I guess.

    Really? my comment is awaiting moderation,,, thats so ironic considering the title of this blog post.

      Yeah, well you’re ironic. And your idea is one to think about

    I would like to see more focus on the local mission. Global and even regional missions are great, necessary, and worthy of support. But not at the cost of the community the church is in. The people down the street need Jesus as much as the people in the inner city and the people in 3rd world countries.

      I am on board with you’re premise. We often overlook the back yard in favor of something far far away. It has to be a both/and, for we might reach a number of people in other countries but if we overlook those down the street, we’ve failed.

    i’d like to see more people involved in the church; fewer sunday churchgoers, and more people getting involved in multiple ministries.

      The whole Sunday Christian thing is one of the most frustrating phenomenons for pastors. And it should bother everyone else, but I’m not sure that it does. Could it be that we don’t push people to commit enough?

    This is a much more practical view and sounds menial, but our church would slove a few problems if they campaigned to have no open seats between people at their services. It would hopefully increase community and at the least it would help efficiency of seating while we are out growing our facility.

      Duana, you are spot on when it comes to space in a worship center. There are often many seats open, even when people are standing and waiting for seats to be brought in. We have a phobia of sitting right next to people or something. But it’s a great suggestion.
