Great Quote

Steve Furtick is the pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC. His blog and manner is a bit in your face and raw. That seems to be his style. But it is definitely working. A little over a year ago, Steve and 8 families sold their homes, quite their jobs, and move to NC to start the church because they believed that is what God wanted them to do. Now, a little over a year later, they are reaching about 1,600 people each weekend. Check out his blog here.

Steve had a great quote on one of his posts: "We don’t feed turkey to the homeless on Thanksgiving and then flip them the bird the rest of the year."

What do you think?


  1. I love this:

    "We know what we believe, why we believe it, and we’re determined to live it out with all of our hearts. We’re not perfect, but our passion is sincere to the bone.
    We’re not here to merely survive or condemn the world, but to transform it for the glory of God.
    And we’re here to stay."


  2. My favorite: "We’re not sitting around forming carpet color committees..."

  3. Jason,

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.


  4. A friend of mine actually goes to elevation church. Him and his wife love it, and I can see why.

  5. I love it also. It's great to see someone with that kind of passion for the church.

    We’d rather be known for what we love than what we hate.
    We’d rather focus on what we’re for than what we’re against.

    That? Is awesome.
