nothing more important

By January 14, 2011Church

Congratulations to LifeChurch.tv on celebrating their 15th anniversary.  Here is a short story with a great closing line from Craig Groeschel.

**********

During LifeChurch.tv’s 15th anniversary celebration this past Sunday, pastor Craig Groeschel rejected the “megachurch” label, despite the fact that he preaches to over 26,000 listeners every week. The Christian Post reported how Groeschel reminded everyone of the church’s “humble beginnings” during the anniversary message, detailing the garage in which he first preached and the various buildings they outgrew on their way to their live satellite broadcasts and 13 locations across the U.S. Groeschel said he’d rather call LifeChurch a “micro-church with a megavision…to go into all the world, not just being happy with a service at 9:00 and 10:30. Never!” Ending his message, Groeschel recommitted himself and his family to the church’s vision, saying, “We are all in again, for the rest of my life…I want you to be all in with me, because there is nothing more important than the church of Jesus Christ glorying God in the world.”
