There’s a reason and a purpose behind just about EVERYTHING we do at Graystone Church. Some people have been asking why we are doing The Man Series. Let me give you a quick look “under the hood of Graystone Church”.
Here are 3 reasons why we do what we do:
1. We will do just about anything to reach people for Jesus Christ. If it is ethical, Biblical, and legal, it is fair game. We are serious about DOMINATING our community with the love of Jesus Christ. We want to see every man, woman and child in our community receive salvation in Heaven. If it takes us doing something crazy to point people to Jesus, we will do it.
2. Make no bones about it (I’m not sure where that saying comes from.), we are trying to reach men for Jesus. For the last 7.5 years our ministry target has been the young, sports-oriented dad. We believe that if you reach dad, you will reach mom and the kids as well. When we prepare a service or a sermon, this is the person that we have in mind. Now, I work hard to make my messages applicable to EVERYONE, but I am specifically focused on unchurched men. This is one of the reasons we are having The Man Series. Most men hate going to church. I’ll talk more about this on Sunday.
3. Sometimes, our band (KATB) plays a “secular” song just to run off the Pharisees and hypocrites from Graystone. This Sunday is one of those Sundays. We are not trying to reach the “churched” who have all the right answers and persoanl opinions about how you should “do church”. We are trying to reach those who are far from God and would NOT normally go to a traditional church. Now, we do have hundreds of strong Christians who grew up in church, and they have bought into the vision of what God has called us to do. We could not do it without them. Graystone is a total team effort!
I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:22b-23
