The end result, it doesn’t matter….
It doesn’t matter if you’re at a really cool church, one that uses all the latest technology. Lights, hazers, video walls, subs galore, digital mixing desks, cool seats, LCD displays all through the lobby, young twenty-somethings dressed in the latest fashions with their Toms shoes, singing the latest Hillsong United cool jam worship stuff.
It doesn’t matter if you’re at an older church that still has pews, no lights to speak of, hazers (don’t even go there), an old Mackie mixing desk and Peavy FOH speakers (like I currently have at my church).
It doesn’t matter….none of that stuff matters….
All that matters is this, are we creating an environment where people can have a genuine encounter with the One, True, Living God?
If you can’t answer YES to that question, then you may want to take a closer look at all the stuff surrounding what you do and figure out how to strip it away and bring the focus back to Jesus.
