Competative Churches

In a post entitled One Church Jared Wilson comment on reports that popular singer/song writer Chris Tomlin will be worship leader at a new church in Atlanta, to be pastored by Louie Giglio. Apparently. some other pastors in the area are afraid that the new work with celebrity leaders will draw off some of their members. Jared asks one question and makes one point:
1. Do you really think losing people who are interested in the celebrity factor is a loss?

2. I've said it before: If you treat your church like a business, you will treat other churches like competition.

Very good question. Very good point.
