“Some people think it would be cool if we had a coffee shop. But I don’t want people getting their lattes here. I want them getting their lattes at the four Starbucks in our area so they can get to know the baristas and invite them into our body.
I don’t want our church doing basketball tournaments for lost people. Lifetime and LA Fitness already have basketball tournaments filled with lost people. I want our guys playing in those games.
We are trying hard to keep the church lean, stripped down, very program-light.
There are no frills.”
