Quote - Simple Strategy

"One factor is to keep your church's strategy simple. We don't try to do everything. Instead, we try to do a few things well. If a ministry isn't a step toward community, we don't do it."

-Andy Stanley, Creating Community: 5 Keys to Building a Small Group Culture, p164

I like the quote, because a church is nothing more than community.

Too often we come at everything backwards. We try to make our organization create community. If the church is a understood as first and foremost a community, then it is the community that should be driving our organization.
