West London Alliance Church

Since I brought up the topic of strategy in my last post, I thought I might share this short video which records Pastor J. D. Greear of The Summit Church answering the question, "How do you win a church to mission?" I came across this video at For The Church, a great resource from Midwestern Seminary.

Before you watch it, here are a couple of things I liked about it:

1) Greear anchors the answer to "How do you win a church to mission?" by making a beeline to the gospel. He anticipates the "buy in" of the congregation with a proper understanding and embracing of gospel theology. I love it.

2) Also, Greear indicates that the work of the church is not what the staff does, but rather what the congregation does through the power of the Holy Spirit. The staff equips (and "catalyzes") the members to reach out to the community. Awesome.
