People Magnet Church
People Magnet Church
Extremely practical and easy to read, Darren Walter offers a multitude of suggestions on making a church a people magnet.
Walter calls us to lift up the cross in the lost world and watch as people are drawn to the magnetic love, truth, and grace of Jesus Christ. The message the church carries will forever remain unchanged, while our method in presenting this good news must adapt to fit the current culture. These two combine to form the mission of any church that is committed to becoming a people magnet in its world.
By being intentional about the type of church we want to be, we will communicate to the world around us that we are passionate about the God we serve. In turn, God himself will draw people to His church. Becoming a people-magnet church does not sacrifice the integrity of the church or its message; rather it allows us to become more like our Savior who was and is the ultimate people magnet.
