Andy Stanley – 21 key learnings

Carey Nieuwhof put together a brief list of gleanings from Andy Stanley’s presentation at the Drive 13 Conference. Here’s a sample:

  • We don’t tailor content of our services for unchurched people, but we do tailor the experience.
  • Nothing should offend people in your weekend services except the Gospel.
  • A clean environment communicates that we’re expecting you.
  • An orderly environment communicates you know what you’re doing.
  • People stop attending church because they disengage, not because they disagree.

(Read the article for more discussion on each point.)

(Some of these I recognize from Stanley’s excellent Deep and Wide, perhaps the best book about doing church since Rick Warren published the Purpose Driven Church.)
