Responding to Deadly Viper/Judd Wilhite post

I never saw the necessity for a big bang, show’em what you got event. I have seen a few new church plants take this approach; only one that pulled it off successfully. I think the draw back for me is that we would put a lot of time, money and energy into a big launch event and then not deliver thereafter. I really don’t think we need to put on a big event like that; instead, we chose to put that money into sustainable, long term ministries that will serve real needs within our community. I’d rather be known in the community as the local that loves and serves people than the local church with the next big thing. That, to me, speaks volumes to the community I’m endeavoring to reach.
