Brenton Balvin recently went to work for Target and noted that Target strives to be a ‘fast, fun and friendly place to work and shop’ and maybe churches need to be fast, fun and friendly.
In the light of our current series on church visitors these are great concepts to keep in mind:
- Fast – You’ll probably accuse me of being too consumerist, but how many visitors can sit through a 45-minute sermon? I know I can’t.
- Fun – Has church ever been fun? And would an outsider consider it fun?
- Friendly – We all think we’re incredibly warm and friendly, but that’s because you know everybody.
