Monday Musings – 10/05/09

RTC AlbertaThe Five Minute Church

What an awesome opportunity to spend last Friday at Vanguard College with 28 leadership students and 32 pastors from across Alberta. RTC Mission's (14)

057To have 20 somethings sit in a room with seasoned pastors and discuss the future of the church was an incredible experience to witness.

To see them pray together at the end of the day was even more incredible.

At the end of the day, I put out a challenge.  If we were given five minutes to describe the ideal church, what would it look like.  The following is the list of characteristics that this group would describe as the ideal church.


Real sense of community

Authentic and real

Walking in supernatural power

Less liturgy and more love

Constant message – changing methods

Transformation

Continuous outreach perspectives

Recognizable identity in the community

Less spectators and more involvement

We need to change before anyone else does

Mentorship

Discipleship

Using gifts and talents to reach the needs of others

Forgiving

open-minded

Intentional

Accepting

Constant

I don’t know about you, but this sounds like an Acts 2 church to me!

Until next Monday…

Don
