    Do you run the services more towards those 'seeking Christ", or to the saved already, or a combo?

    We use an attractional model to get people into the door and then move them into intentional, incarnational ministry.

    You gotta get 'em.

    We do hold some events at out church for the purpose of being part of the community. We also work to be part of things the community does. But our services ( while very visitor friendly) are geared for worship of believers. We try to have something for every one IE the lost, the babe, and the mature. But the primary focus is the worship of God by believers. God tells us in His word to go into the world. No where in scripture does is demand the lost come into the church. Evangelism, at our church, is done out there.

    That is just our view and how we do it.

    My friend. All churches should be seeker friendly, just not Bill Hybel's idea of "seeker friendliness"

    Sounds about same as we do it!

    geared towards the saved to have some solid "meat", but also explained in a way that anyone who the Lord is 'dealing with" can be saved any given Sunday!
