  1. I wonder how many people would say they don’t want their church to grow out of a fear of some of the popular church movements. They may not be answering the question but instead answering what they link to the question – do you want to become a mega church? A better question to ask maybe – how many don’t want to be a part of influencing lives in their community with the love of Jesus? Maybe not the best wording but it does avoid the pitfall of an answer based on an assumption about the meaning behind the question.
