I’ll admit that I’m a conference junkie. I love going to conferences and sitting in workshop after workshop. If you’ve read the advertisements from many of today’s conferences, you will find that the subject matter often focuses on techniques, ambiance, and communication. It’s great and needed. But, as great as these topics might be, nothing can or will replace what can happen when a church is set on fire with the Holy Spirit. While creating ambiance and analyzing technique may cause a “wow” factor, the fire from heaven will create a “now” factor that causes the explosive church growth experienced throughout the Book of Acts.
Here is how one of my heroes explained it …
“You never have to advertise a fire. Everyone comes running when there’s a fire.
Likewise, if your church is on fire, you will not have to advertise it.
The community will already know it.”
Want to pack out your church and create the need for an additional service and then have to build new facilities to accommodate the additional growth? Set your church on fire with the Holy Spirit! And everyone said, “Amen”. So be it.
