22 Oct Willow Creek's Soul-Searching
The team at Willow Creek has launched a new website called REVEAL. The are in the process of doing research about what is truly effective in making ‘fully devoted followers’.
Greg Hawkins, their Executive Pastor, talks very openly in this online video about what has been effective and what has apparently not been.
He describes five different groups that the church attempts to provide ministry for: Exploring, Growing, Close, Christ-Centered, and Stalled.
I found this very thought provoking. The video is 13 minutes long, but it is worth the watch.
