Fav Read Of The Week:
- Is It Time to Take Your Ministry Events to the Slaughterhouse? by Tim Peters. Man, I loved this post so much. It came on the heels of a conversation I had with a friend. We were talking about his church's super-full calendar and the feeling both of us shared that maybe this contributed the the generally low attendance for each of the dozens and dozens of events his church put on. Then I read Peters' post. It's solid stuff. I would advise you to read it and use it to evaluate your ministry calendar/strategy.
