I have a confession to make.
As a pastor, I have too much invested in getting people to attend church.
My salary depends on it.
My reputation depends on it.
My sense of self-worth depends on it.
All to a much larger degree and I’m comfortable with.
And I’m not alone.
The way most church systems are structured, most pastors have a greater stake in getting people to come to church than getting them to come to Jesus.
