    So true! And the bigger problem is most churches are doing 100 more things than the should be just to look busy.

    YES, Scott & Jimmy! Why won’t church leaders hear and understand this? As Communications Director at a 1000+ attendee church, I’m constantly preaching the “simplify!” message to our leaders, but it falls on deaf ears. We’re almost 50 years old and bloated with decades of adding on and never pruning. Guessing it’s mostly “old” churches experiencing this?
