Often with church we think about seating capacity. We build, gather, and grow (mostly internally) retaining our people and then dividing. Not a bad thing… but what if we thought bigger. Not bigger buildings, but bigger impact.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
What if instead we thought about our sending capacity? Same framework; different focus. We’d build, gather and grow people to send them out. Seeking not to seat but to send those we have poured into and equipped to evangelize, furthering the gospel where it’s needed most.
