Picking a domain name can get tricky. If you wear a lot of hats, it can be especially tricky to pick a domain name that represents in as few words as possible what you are all about, especially since so many of the best short domain names are now taken or thousands of dollars.
So why did I ultimately end up with the name “Greet More”? I found that there are a few good applications for these two words.
I want to see Christians personally and corporately grow in their effort to greet more people into their church doors. People of every class, race, and worldview ought to be entering our doors each week to hear the truth from God’s word, and there is hardly a better place to see them transformed by God’s Spirit into new people. Online outreach is just one means of helping that come to pass, but it’s one I’ve been gifted with knowing a thing or two about, and so I would like to share that knowledge as much as I can. Also, it is arguably the outreach means that has the greatest return on investment and is the most intricately trackable to determine the ROI.
I want to see Christians greet more kingdom work into their lives. This may make some stomaches turn. So many of us are already feeling so overwhelmed. What more is this blogger going to add onto my
I must address those whose burdens are so much heavier than the ones I carry. I haven’t forgotten you. Maybe your current crosses preclude you from being your church’s foremost evangelist. Only you can search your heart and determine what God has made possible for you to do. If you are excited to start a more robust online outreach effort at your church, don’t forget about these people. In your zeal to see progress, you could certainly hurt the feelings of those with heavy burdens you maybe even don’t know about.
In the parable of the talents, getting the opportunity to “greet more” was contingent on faithfulness with what had already been given. Sanctification and growth in Christian leadership
One last thought on the evangelistic work of a church. Look at your own congregation. There is a concept called the “Pareto principle” (also known as the 80/20 rule, the law of the vital few, or the principle of factor sparsity). The short definition of this principle is that 80% of the effects derive from 20% of the causes. Many in church and business leadership refer this model as applying to their people, in that 20% of the congregation or business are accomplishing 80% of what is accomplished. I believe the church was not intended to look like this. That is certainly not the picture painted of the early church. It is certainly not what we see in today’s persecuted church. Do we need to become persecuted to turn the tide here?
This is the core of my message here on this blog. Everything, from technical tutorials on how to hack the search results to up your church’s visibility, to reflections on God’s word, is all directed to this aim: that as we greet more of God’s work into our lives, our pews would greet more visitors.
