Why I DON’T Want to Build a Great Church

“Why I DON’T Want to Build a Great Church

I saw this in an article written by an old friend, Neal McGlohon, formerly a Leadership Consultant for Baptist Metrolina Ministries.  Neil writes:

Everyone would probably agree that a great church is one that reveals a great God, but we often get sidetracked and our focus and actions don’t match that belief, or goal…As a result, we scramble and strive to reclaim or multiply our “greatness.”  We get burned out and frustrated trying to build a “great church,” …by trying a new program, returning to a old program, hiring more staff, trying new staff, being driven by innovations, being driven by traditions, changing locations, adding facilities, etc.  (In the process) we find ourselves more committed to church (the organization) than to Christ Himself.  Renewal will only come as we go back and build a foundation on the Biblical truths and values that help the people reveal a great God.

Our challenge, then, is not to build a great church – but to reveal a great God.

What does that mean?  How do we reveal a GREAT God?
