Two Pools

Those of us who work in churches fish from two pools.

First, there’s the community pool.  Today in our lead team meeting, we strategized about more ways that we could get those in our world to attend Oak Leaf Church.  We invite, we emphasize relationships, we do community outreach, we put on events, we advertise.  We want to do everything we can to get people to come to church.

But there’s a second pool that we (and our key volunteers) need to fish.  When people come on Sunday, we need to treat that like an opportunity to connect people.  Journey Group leaders need to look for new members.  Kids workers need to invite people to join the team.  Just like we work to get people to church, those in the church need to fish for people to get connected.

We must learn to fish from two pools.
