Perhaps the church can learn from the NFL Draft!
The NFL Draft is not looking for passive spectators to sit around and listen to the coach every week; but for game-changers who get off the bench and make plays! (To see the importance of having a team full of play-makers, watch the movie Draft Day staring Kevin Costner.)
“The church is called to gather regularly to display God’s life through the ministry of every believer. How? Not by religious services where a few people perform before a passive audience. But in open-participatory meetings where every member . . . functions, ministers, and expresses the living God in an open-participatory atmosphere.” –Frank Viola
