Another Look at Consumerism in the Church

As we take a deeper look at Consumerism in the Church, we have to understand what exactly is meant by consumerism in our ministries.

Lets start with the gospel. The gospel is clearly about a RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ. And also to share that relationship with others that do not know him.

So somewhere in time we became about extravagant buildings, only allowing a certain social group to participate, and many programs that entertain fellow believers.

How…..Why….What Happened…..

Francis Chan in a recent magazine issue talked about what it would be like if we were stranded on a desert island and had nothing but the bible to start a church.

What would we do if we did not have the option to build million dollar buildings, start thousands of dollars of programs, etc?

Let the innovation begin
