Do you ever find yourself sucked into watching those trashy political shows? There’s something weird going on in those shows that gets us all fired up and excited.
It turns out that people like to have their existing beliefs confirmed by others. It feels good, and more importantly, it’s easy. It’s easy as a viewer to watch someone confirm our already-formed opinions. So it’s easy for a show to get ratings and viewers by confirming their viewers’ beliefs.
And the opposite is HARD. It can be difficult to step out of your opinions for a minute and view things from a different perspective, or to see something from someone else’s viewpoint.
So what the heck does this have to do with leading a church?
Well… are you doing the same thing in your church? Are you preaching to the choir? Week after week do you confirm the existing beliefs of people who are already following Jesus, or do you seek to attract an audience of people who think differently than you — an audience of people who are far from God?
The fact is, getting non-Christians to check out your church and become receptive to what you have to say about God is a HARD thing to do… but it’s totally worth it, and it’s one of the greatest causes you can give your life to.
That’s exactly why we created the Vault Conference. We want to equip you with practical ideas you can implement in your church to lead people who are radically lost into a radical relationship with Jesus. You can learn more (and register) at VaultConference.com.
