Unfortunately, what we have decided the one thing pastors and church leaders should never say is something we hear daily. And even though we hear it often, I still find myself sad every time a pastor tells me this:

“We have plenty of people already coming through our doors, so we don’t need to do any outreach.”

Just go back and read that again.

Churches don’t need to do outreach?  Didn’t Christ command us to reach all peoples from all nations, including your local community?

So, never let those words come out of your mouth. Instead, let’s do every type of outreach that it takes to reach every unchurched and unreached person in our communities and throughout the world.
