Purple Church


I just finished reading the book Purple Cow by Seth Godin and the book just blew me away! If there is a book I would recommend pastors to read – it is this book. The book challenges us to THINK!

WHY DO WE EXIST? WHAT MAKES JESUS REMARKABLE? HOW ARE WE, AS A CHURCH , TRYING TO MAKE JESUS AND HIS WORD REMARKABLY RELEVANT AND REMARKABLY LIFE CHANGING? WHAT ARE WE DOING AS A CHURCH TO ENGAGE THE LOST? HOW DO I USE MY RESOURCES WISELY TO ENGAGE THE LOST?

If you want to know the answers buy the book. I can’t blog everything here. Just some insights I learned:

To be a Purple Church i have to be remarkable. Jesus is our product. The greatest gift given to mankind but how come a lot of people are not responding to Jesus? A lot of times we don’t know our niche. CLick here to understand the niche .

Improving how we do church and pulling all our efforts and resources to engage the culture with the gospel would produce results that could surprise us.

Innovate, think outside the box, be creative without losing the presence of God, passionate worship and the preaching of the Word.

As you focus on a certain group of people they will then spread what the church is doing and how excellent the church is because of the church’s focus in reaching their niche thus attracting the masses to come.

Being safe is risky. Church shouldn’t be boring– It should be engaging. The word of God will never pass away which means even as culture changes the word of God remains relevant.

PS: Before buying the purple cow book, make sure to answer the purple book first.
