Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts

Here is an interesting article: churchrelevance.com » Are you a Starbucks Church or a Dunkin’ Donuts Church?

I think this goes back to understanding who you are as a church. Once you understand who you are as a church, then you can discover who you are best equipped to reach. Then you must pursue them with an excellence of ministry.

There are many who want to be a Starbuck's Church, but are stuck trying to change a Dunkin' Donuts Church. I have found that changing the culture of a church is difficult, if not impossible. It is like trying to change your spouse, someone is just going to get mad and end up in counseling. It takes a very special person to work in an existing church and lead them effectively into effectiveness.

Thanks to Todd at MMI for the heads up on this article.
