Insight 085: FaithSoaring Churches Contribute Significantly to the Lives of Others
Congregations who transform do not just focus on doing good works. They do something that contributes significantly to the lives of others. They do not rejoice in contributing a certain amount of money to missional projects, or serving a certain number of people with food, clothes, and other commodities.
Instead they rejoice in the people–by name–whose lives they have been a small part of transforming. They have in-depth relationships with households/families. They pray specifically for households/families by name. They are not just busy in service, but focus on the transformation of lives ather than the success of programs.
