multi-site both/and multiplying disciplers

Posted in better disciples, more disciples at 11:52 PM by alexlozada

Today’s pastoral staff meeting balanced “both/and” . . . .

Celebrating Good Friday + Easter “yay God!” stories AND acknowledging ways that our staff didn’t go the extra mile to make all 8 services “as Mountain as they could be.”

The Spirit is opening some exciting doors for possible campuses elsewhere in Harford County “both/and” the perfect fit of what our hard-working search team has sought all along AND the perfect stretch of an opportunity beyond our racial zone.

At the same meeting we explored the short-term programming challenges to multi-site (need more volunteers, more equipment even on tight budget), we “both/and” talked about the challenge of remembering our call to go beyond merely programming.  Making better disciples through meaningful, intentional, spiritually-insightful-question-asking relationships is why MCC has groups.  Mac Lake, of multi-site Seacoast Church, writes about orienting towards discipling (rather than programming) in these blog posts.
