All Things

April 30, 2009

Mike said this on the 9Marks blog:

“Our church is about 30% international (first generation immigrants) with roughly 20 countries represented from almost every continent (our Antarctic outreach was a disaster).  We couldn’t conceivably calibrate our service to feel culturally familiar to everyone.  But Christians don’t come to church for the clothes, the skits, the videos, the style of music.  They come to praise God together through song, prayer, preaching, and reading the Word.  When we do those things in our gatherings, our brothers and sisters from all over the world will actually feel more at home.”
