PODCAST 077: Tim Celek & Defining Matthew 28 by Focusing on the One




Church, why do we do this? Why do we do 'church'? I don't mean physical church, or digital church. I don't mean weekend services, or small groups. I simply mean, why is it that we do what we do?

Our buildings, our online... Pastor, there are times that pride gets to us and we think that our physical or digital footprint are the endgame. I've been guilty of this, I admit it. Chances are, if you're honest, you have been to.

That being said, the digital/physical representations of our church are actually the means to the end... meaning they're important, but not the focus. Our focus, our endgame? Well, Matthew 28 lays that out pretty clear.

Church, we may have lost our way here, and a clear and honest refocusing of your church may be necessary. Let's better understand the idea of the "one"... not only for your organization, but the importance of helping your attenders find their "one".

  • Does your church drift to the back half of the Great Commission, or intentionally focus on the front half?
  • Would a focus on "the one" work your church? Is your church intentional on not only focusing on the organizational "one", but also helping people find their "one"?
  • What does your church need to do to mobilize your attenders away from the yacht club mindset back to a rescue society? How can you convert your attenders to an army?


We know these conversations are out there are hard. Even the best of churches haven't figured out... If this podcast is helping you and your church work through what Church Online is, then help us impact other churches! Take a moment and leave us a brief review!
