Sharable Quotes (#NewChurches):
One of the big mistakes we’ve made is shifting from starting churches to starting church services. Paul never went in and started a service. He began by engaging the community with the gospel, focused on disciple-making. —Vance Pitman
Missiologists tell us that the most strategic way of bringing a revival back to our continent is reaching lost people for Christ. —Mark Lee
Church planters have to remember what lost people are not looking for and what they are looking for. —Vance Pitman
A lot of church planters will default to the weekly gathering and some sort of discipleship in small groups. We must challenge people to keep a focus on engagement with the city, one-on-one sharing the gospel, reaching people where they are. —NoahOldham
There’s an old adage that if we want other people to feel something, we have to bleed something. If we want to build an evangelistic fire in our church, it has got to start with us as the pastors. —Mark Lee
All of us have Christ in us, seeking and saving the lost. We have to create opportunities within our church, allow people to live that out, because many will never choose that on their own. —Vance Pitman
The goal of the gospel, of what Jesus had in mind, is when I sit at my table who else am I inviting to the table with me? —Mark Lee
