When we get a whole bunch of people engaged on the atmosphere, we’re changing; we’re establishing a new culture. We’re shifting the balance of power from negativity to faith, from negativity to favor, from negativity to focus. What will happen is if we create that culture we’ll end up with a situation where most of our people will not need pastoring, because they’ll know how to grow up into all things by themselves. Then we can get on with our business of pastoring pre-Christians into the kingdom.
