I continue this week with our series from my book, Changing the Way We Do Church: 7 Steps to a Purposeful Reformation. Let's look at the fifth step, but if you need to catch up with the previous four, you can do so here.
The fifth step is: Develop services, Sunday Schools, kids church, youth meetings and even committee meetings that people want to attend because there is a spirit of excellence and the unexpected.
Keep in mind that we are focusing in this series on the impact purpose can and should have on the church. When you have folks doing things because someone has to do them, you get noble but usually uninspired and unanointed results. When you find people whose purpose it is to do those things, then you get supernatural results.
Can you imagine what would happen if everyone working in church wanted to be doing what they are doing (not from duty or guilt) and the people, including the youth and children, could not wait to get there? It would be a purposeful reformation! The challenge is that some leaders don't have a system to know what people can do and some people have not done the work to know who they are so they can do their purpose work.
I am on the go today, and won't have Internet service throughout the week, so this is short. We will expand on this more next week as well as look at the sixth step. Have a blessed, purposeful week!
KENYA UPDATES: I updated the work in Kenya with two reports from Pastor Peter and Pastor Francis. You can access them both on the site where they are posted. After you read, do what you can to help the people there by sending a check to PurposeQuest, PO Box 8882, Pittsburgh, PA 15221-0882 or by giving through my website. When you give, you will be helping some precious and sweet children and orphans as pictured here from Pastor Peter's work. Thank you and God bless you!
