It’s time for a change. The church in America is sick. Not only is the church losing ground (80%-85% of all churches in America are either not growing or they are going backwards), but many are giving into a man-centered philosophy of ministry. Entertainment and ear-tickling have replaced passionate worship and solid Bible teaching. It’s time for a change. It’s time to get back to a VERTICAL, God glorifying focus and passion.
That’s why I’m honored to be a part of the Harvest Bible Chapel movement…a movement where we want God’s glory on display more than we want anything else. This September we will launch Harvest Bible Chapel, Fort Wayne. My prayer is that we will bring glory to God as we make disciples. I’m praying our church will passionately pursue God’s manifest glory each and ever week!
This month, I will be reading “The Vertical Church” by Pastor James MacDonald and I’ll be posting my thoughts here. I am excited to reminded about what’s important and to share how we plan on keeping a passionately vertical focus. So buy a copy, read it for yourself, and tune in to discuss this important topic with me!
