Why People "Don't Chruch

What do pastors need to do to get people to commit?

This does not come form an adventist. source.  Does it have anything of value to Adventists?  You decide.

Here is a brief statement from the article:

But first, despite the title of this post, the challenge before us isn’t about getting people to go to church.

It’s about inspiring people to commit to

  • Worshiping Jesus
  • Genuine relationships with God’s people
  • Making disciples
  • Doing ministry for those in need

If your focus is trying to get people to commit to your Sunday service schedule, your denominational preference, maintaining your church building or anything like that, you might as well stop reading right now. In fact, you might as well close your church right now.

Gregory,

While I agree with him on the small church thing he is not revolutionary.  He is coming to the game quite late. The SDA church was told well over 100 years ago to have small churches widely scattered around the country.  We ignored the advice and built great big churches and congregated in large numbers instead of being out spreading the gospel like we were told to do.  We see the results of our ignoring what God told us to do today.
