Love God, Love People, Serve the World

God is love. He is to be loved. He loves when you love Him. Love God.

Love People. People need love. People love being loved. Love People.

Serve the World. The World needs your service. The World loves being served. Serve the World.

In a church context it would look like this:

Love God = Worship Service, Love People = small groups, Serve the World = Ministry Teams

In the book Simple Church, there is an example of churches that view the number of attenders horizontally, which means the total number in worship, small groups, and in ministry teams. Viewing attenders vertically, allows us to view the process in a different perspective. We can see the percentage of attenders from worship into small groups, and then into ministry teams.

So in order to have an accurate picture of the process, the measurement must take place at every level. The process must in the DNA of the church. Everything must be evaluated in the light of the vision or process to be able to discern if a new program or ministry fits into the bigger scheme of the church.

Stay in the Light,

Pastor Larry
