A few days ago I talked about a girl who I met in Starbucks and how she ultimately said, “If there was a church like that, I’d go.” And the “like that” she talked about was simple, a place that is authentic, not perfect and a place people who are not church people actually like when they experience.

I emailed her the next day and told her a little more and this is part of her response:

Thank You so much for the nice email…One thing you will know about me is I am not shy, and sometimes I don’t have a filter. LOL… I would love it if you add me to your email list. I went home that day and told my husband about the church and I look forward to going once its open. It would be a nice and fresh start. Please keep me posted… I will definitely check the Twitter out. If you need anything let me know.
I think that’s awesome.

 

Today I bought something from a guy on craigslist for my son’s 3rd birthday. I went to his home, which is deep-east-clovis… I mean, out there. Usually a craigslist transaction is a quick 2-5 minutes. We talked for 40. About life, hunting, homeownership, family, dogs, and church. He told me that his family occasionally goes to a church, but doesn’t really see a need for it. (irrelevant) He also told me that they once walked out of a known church because they couldn’t take the sermon. “It just hit [them] wrong.”

 

When I described to him that we are planting a church that unchurched people, regular people, would LOVE to attend… they’d actually enjoy it, he was intrigued. By the end I gave him my business card and he said, “We might just come to your church.”

 

I think that’s awesome.

 

There are so many unknowns to church-planting, but here’s a known. People who are far from God will come. People who are not currently growing in a relationship with Jesus Christ, will begin.

 

And I think…
It’s Worth It.
