Every church needs 4 wheels on the bus.
First of all the bus is not a transit bus where people come and go; it is like a team bus where people know each other and care. The side of the bus has a big LOVE on it. Not because it is aspirational but because it is actual.
One front wheel on the bus is rolling to get Old Friends on the bus.
The other front wheel is rolling to integrate people into the family.
One back wheel is rolling to reach New Friends — the people we don’t know yet.
The other back wheel is rolling to reach out altruistically to people and places from which the church can gain no direct benefit.
