This is an invite! Open armed, no right answers. It is a way for me to get advice or check myself. I propse a situation and ask you,”What would you do?” . You know WWYD? [and I do not mean Yeshua!] You can ask yourself ‘what would Jesus do?’, but then tell me based on that if that is how you do it, What would you do? Here we go, and this happened to me.
Some one hands you the keys to a church. It comes with piano, organ , nice enough building with great parking, moveable pews, total seating for 100, and about 8 new Christians, one couple from a fundementalist/legalist background and a couple seekers. All the officers quit and leave with costs of$750.00 per month and a balance of $7000.00 available to you. The downside, the basement has been flooded twice in 3 years and there is no leadership, none. The church was started by the SBC in the 70’s and went down hill ever since. There is no lock to stay with SBC, if you do you are one of 20 SBC churches in a 17 county area of 1.7 million people, fully half of those people are RC. There are no rules, no existing culture, no one will get mad at your ideas, do what you want.
So here are the keys, you’re up! What do you do? What worship style, what bible, what meetings, what vision? I can’t wait to read the comments!
