Thoughts on Visiting Many Churches

Our own Craig and Anne Noll spent a year visiting 26 different churches. Their helpful observations are published online here.

They start with four questions:

1. Do we sense here a passion for God himself?

2. Does this seem like a community in which we could use our gifts (versus simply helping to staff established programs)?

3. Is there a sense of community here, of people belonging to each other?

4. Does this church convey a sense of being part of the larger body of Christ in the area (versus being a self-contained entity)?

There are number of applications for worship leaders, preachers, and the worshiping assembly.

Excellent! Very helpful! Thanks Craig and Anne!
