The Selling-Out of Our Churches

To succeed, a number of denominations and local congregations alike are seeking marketing know-how, whether among church staff or from from hired experts.

Churches Seeking Market-Saavy Breed of Pastor

"The best marketers and best salesmen will have more converts, will have more people, will take in more money.... Evangelicals are marketers because they're really passionate about their product."

Hmmm... I don't see that in my Bible...

It's articles like this one that makes home churches look so very appealing. After all, the Apostles never met in a mega-church... perhaps there's a reason for that.

Peace, love and following only God...


"Advertising is a valuable economic factor because it is the cheapest way of selling goods, particularly if the goods are worthless."
