GRANITE UNITED has been experiencing our HIGHEST ATTENDANCES EVER, which is very cool! I have been asked numerous times what's the key to BREAKING ATTENDANCE BARRIERS through MULTI-SITE. I'll share a number of things we have learned along our journey in the next few posts
1. A CONVICTION that GOD STILL is not willing that any should perish. The Lord has not changed His mind or heart towards the lost, and neither should the church. We do what we do to DEPOPULATE HELL and POPULATE HEAVEN.
2. A COMMITMENT to do all that we do for GOD'S GLORY. All that we are, all that we accomplish is nothing more than GOD DOING HIS WORK in and through us. The church MUST ALWAYS be focused on GOD'S GLORY.
3. A CLEAR VISION for what GOD has called GRANITE TO DO. Our goal is not to be like the church down the street, across the nation or to conform to any person ideology. GOD has given GRANITE a clear vision as to who and what we are to be, and THE VISION IS NOT FOR SALE. The vision wil be challenged by VISION VANDALS, and fueled by VISION VICTORS, but at the end of the day IT'S GODS VISION AND ITS NOT FOR SALE.
These are THREE of the many keys to BREAKING ATTENDANCE BARRIERS, to REACHING AND KEEPING PEOPLE. These may sound to SIMPLE but at GRANITE we have learned these are THREE MUSTS to growing a HEALTHY CHURCH.
For our GRANITE TEAM this is a reminder of WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!
