My Church is Bigger Than Yours Jesus….

He gets it.

The following account is powerful.

Pastor Francis Chan challenged a room full of some of the most influential church leaders with a message that every lover of the local church should hear.

This past weekend I was rocked by something that Francis Chan said. He told a room of 1000 pastors and church leaders that much of our ministry might be powered by our own efforts and not the power of the Holy Spirit.

Francis said that he knew how to grow a church — he’s a pretty good speaker, he can lead a talented team of musicians, he knows how to incorporate video, lights, etc. But if Jesus was the pastor of a church in our town — would our church be bigger than Jesus’ church? Would we be able to draw a bigger crowd because we tell them what they WANT to hear and give them an experience that feels good?

That’s a head-rattling, heart-stopping thought. – Brian Mosley
