I’m looking for an ideal church where the PASTOR IS…
friendly, understanding, humorous, always available, relevant, likeable, caring, hospitable.
His sermons are interesting, easy to understand, completely biblical, enjoyable to listen to and never too long (or too short)—always convicting when talking about the sins of others, but always accepting of me and my “weaknesses.”
You can drop by his office any time for a visit—short or long. He’ll always have time for everyone, and always get everything done—no matter how many people need his personal attention—no matter what the need is, and no matter how large the church becomes, and no matter what is happening in his own family.
He’s just that good.
If he were not, I wouldn’t go. I’m looking for an ideal church.
I’m looking for an ideal church where the MUSIC IS…
modern, yet traditional.
Energetic, yet reverent.
Spirit-driven, yet dignified.
Completely geared toward the youth, yet appealing to the elderly.
Doctrinally deep, yet not lyrically stuffy.
Inclusive of lots of instruments, yet not too showy.
Excellent in performance, but not performISH.
Given lots of time during the service for those who love to get lost in worship, but not given too much time in the service for those who love to feast upon the word of God.
If the music did not fit this criteria, I wouldn’t go. I’m interested in finding an ideal church.
