Defining the Win for our Weekend Services

• Immediate win = when a regular attendee brings an unchurched friend who enjoys the service so much that he or she returns the next week.
• Long term win = producing an RTL (radically transformed life)

 

Four Areas of Vision

This is what results in a Passionate Worshiper!
