Flashback Friday: Why We Do What We Do
Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!
Two weeks ago, a lady walked up to our First Time Guest tent after the service she had just attended. She was in town for her niece’s wedding the day before. The niece is a Summit member who told her aunt it would be worth her time to stick around for a service. Here’s what she said (almost verbatim, but not quite, because my wife doesn’t tote a recorder)…
“I’m not sure who needs to know this, but I just couldn’t go home without telling someone about my experience. I was raised in church. I know church. But I’ve never experienced church quite like that. I loved being here today!“
Every weekend, we want to create five-star experiences for first-time guests so they’ll make a second-round visit. Don’t misunderstand…it’s not about the Summit. It’s about the Summit lowering people’s defenses and raising people’s expectations so that we’re able to set the table for the gospel.
