A Church on the Move

Washington D. C.'s National Community Church, pastored by my blogger buddy, Mark Batterson, was given six days notice to relocate after the theater where they've been meeting for thirteen years (Union Station) was closed

This is a major blow, as the location served around 700 people.

Good thing this congregation is thoroughly missional and understands that a church consists of people rather than a building.

I've been so impressed with Batterson's (and NCC's) attitude through all of this. They continue to move forward with great attitudes through it all. Mark said that their attendance the sunday after the were given the boot from the theatre was only down 1 from the previous Sunday, and that weeks offering was one of the biggest ever. Incredible!

Thank you Mark for such a wonderful statement about a church. Too bad all churches do not put the value of a soul above the value of their new building project. God bless this ministry!!!
