re-thinking ministry

This blog turned me onto someone else looking to build empowered disciples instead of entertaining folks.  The original story can be found here.

This pastor, Walt Kallestad, had built a mega church with an attendance of 12,000. But then God woke him up to the fact that he was entertaining people, not building disciples. So they changed the way they do ministry. They changed their focus. It cost the church – 1/3 of his congregation went elsewhere. But now people are involved in ministry.
