Imagine for a moment…
You feel a pain in your chest. You can’t breathe…you can’t move.
Someone notices and calls 911. People crowd around you, encouraging you to stay calm, that help is on its way.
The ambulance picks you up, and rushes you to the hospital. It’s deemed that you need an operation immediately. There’s a severe blockage in your arteries.
You’re taken to the O.R. The anesthesiologist is called in. As the nurse is prepping you for surgery, she says, “Good news: our hospital has the best heart surgeon in the country…you’re in good hands!”
You start to feel drowsy from the anesthesia, when you hear the surgeon enter the room. You can tell he’s in a panic. “Where are my tools?” the surgeon barks. “All I have here is a rusty exacto knife & some pliers!” Then what he says next strikes fear into your artery-clogged heart: “Oh well, this’ll have to do…”
You try to sit up in objection, but it’s too late. You’re out.
Here’s the point: You can have the best doctor medicine has ever seen. But if he doesn’t have the right tools for the job, you’re in real trouble!
Same goes for the guys in my field: Pastors.
It doesn’t matter if he’s the best expositor of scripture since Charles Spurgeon.
It doesn’t matter if he’s got the bedside manner of Mother Teresa.
In today’s day & age, it takes more than good preaching & pastoral care to reach a community far from God.
That’s why I’m launching my first ever kickstarter campaign on Monday, June 15th. I have put in a book, the 6 fundamentals every Pastor needs to know & use to better fulfill the Great Commission in their city.
And I need your help.
I want to get this book (that I’ve called “The Church Playbook") into the hands of 100 Pastors. And if you’ll donate $20.00 on Monday, I believe we can CRUSH this goal in ONE DAY! You can have The Church Playbook sent to a Pastor you know. And if you don’t know a Pastor personally, believe me, I know plenty that I can send one to on your behalf.
But it’s going to take ALL. OF. US. to make this happen.
I’m going to send you one more post on Monday with the link to my campaign. It would mean the world to me if you’d support this effort!
Excited for Monday. Grateful for you!
