ben arment is a creative, a teacher, a church planter, and author of the book “church in the making.” too, arment occasionally says some pretty profound stuff on his blog.
There is a cost to bringing the Gospel to a community and only three options available…
- You pay for it.
- Someone else pays for it.
- The recipients pay for it.
If it’s number one, get used to the disregard, you’re bivocational. If it’s number 2, hey what do you know, you’re a missionary. If it’s number 3, congratulations, you’ve managed to secure the only socially validated kind of church in American culture.
