Recently heard from a new friend that Jacob’s Well was the first community he ever visited that he seriously considered moving his whole life to join it. I respect this guy’s opinion of church a lot. Pretty strong statement. He really couldn’t tell what it was that made it so different (Tim is a great communicator – there are lots of those out there – and the services look pretty “normal” he said, there was just something different)
I spent a little time looking at their website, checking their message boards. Get this regular theme, Tim (the pastor) just shows them Jesus and lives the same in an amazing way.
How much time do we spend showing people religion or christianity instead of Jesus? Just a thought.
