Why gospel ministry is about producing people, not things


MINISTRY PRINCIPLES & PRAGMATICS

We make disciples. That’s our Lord’s command. We’re not about making events, or buildings, or programs, or sermons, or books, or blogs.
That doesn’t mean we don’t work on these things, it doesn’t mean we don’t also do these things. In fact, doing these things may take up 90% of church staff time. But that’s ok, as long as the goal and purpose of doing those things is producing people.
This is also why we should keep seeing things happen at just below their best… because we’re constantly bringing people in, giving them a go, and developing their skills and faith in God who works through them.
As you look at your ministry week, are you producing people? Are you coaching them and developing them into Jesus’ people?
