So What Have We Learned?

A Great Question!

bill hybels
Bill Hybels

“It’s amazing to see how even one well designed service, concert or program can be used by God to replace mistaken notions about Him and to open outsiders to hearing more.”

dave ferguson
Dave Ferguson

“For us to accomplish Christ’s directive, we have come to value the edge over the center, the new over the established, and the lost more than the found.”

what we ve learned
What we've learned

The EDGE is scarier than the CENTER, the NEW is more exciting than the ESTABLISHED, and to reach the LOST someone has to be LOOKING!

what we ve learned1
What we've learned

People reach people…not advertising!

BUT…the people have to like the product, or they don’t tell anyone!

what we ve learned2
What we've learned

You don’t have to own a building to reach people!

BUT…you do have to have seats available!

so what now

So What Now?
