I almost included this in the previous post but it was already getting windy.
Back during the pre-launch days of LifePoint, one of the ideas I bounced around in my head was the idea of launching the church in several coffee shop locations simultaneously. Several of the coffee shops have an open mic / concert room that typically seats any where from 50-100 people. They are already staged and have tables and chairs.
The idea was to offer the same type of worship style in multiple locations and try to build on the foot traffic of each coffee shop. I believe all of the coffee shops are open early on Sunday mornings and none of them has a group that uses them at that time.
The crowd would be smaller by necessity, which could create an awesome opportunity for a real sense of community to develop.
Maybe next time …
