Some members of our church staff recently attended the Drive Conference, a conference for church and ministry leaders, held at North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA. In this and several upcoming posts, I will share some notes from that conference.
Andy Stanley led another main session titled "Creating a Come-and-See Culture: Three Essential Ingredients". Here is some of what he shared:
The 3 essential ingredients are: an appealing setting; an engaging presentation; and helpful content.
In all our ministry environments, there are things that are blind to us but obvious to guests.
Never let an org chart determine what people do, especially publicly.
You must be engaging; what you say can't simply be true.
People stop attending because they disengage not because they disagree.
Attention span is determined by the quality of the presentation.
