Back to the sticks…

Posted: November 13, 2008 in Church, Crosspoint

Well, sort of.  Coming back from “the sticks” to our own “sticks” is just a change of scenery.  Actually, Decatur’s like Atlanta compared to Loudonville.  Loudonville’s 2000ish people made places like Town Creek and Falkville looks almost metropolitan.  (Though actually smaller, these local towns are practically metro to Decatur).  Loudonville is in the middle of nowhere.  You have to drive 20 miles through farmland and Amish country to get somewhere bigger like…Wooster.  Nowhere is nowhere!

And these guys are doing something unthinkable.  Across several campuses, they are reaching as many people as there are in the town of Loudonville itself.  It is amazing to contemplate.

Who says you cannot go into a small town and plant a church that can reach hundreds or even thousands of people?  Who says we cannot lead people in Decatur and the surrounding areas into new life in Christ?  There are ways we can make that happen that involve out of the box thinking and out of the box people – people of incredible character who are utterly driven to connect with the unchurched/dechurched at any cost.

I’m in.  Here’s a dangerous question:  Are YOU in?

    I like the way you put that! I have been boxed up so long with my legalistic church, I’m ready to be out of the box and connect with the unchurched in the sticks of Decatur and surrounding areas! Crosspoint is helping me to crawl out of the box!

    Good thoughts! Even though the church I attend is considered somewhat “Traditional”, our new pastor is really going outside the box to draw unchurched folks in. Oddly, a lot of the things he discusses doing always makes me think, “that sounds like something Crosspoint has done” It’s really pretty amazing.

    Dude, you have to ask?
