When crowds refused to disperse at Elvis Presley concerts in hopes of another encore from the king of rock and roll, the announcement that “Elvis has left the building” had to be made. Pastor Pat Hood recalls from childhood one such performance that came to his hometown, and with his new book The Sending Church he makes a similar declaration: "The church must leave the building."
Indeed, our lives should be “sent” in worship to the King of kings, spreading out from our weekly gathering places to extend God’s Kingdom worldwide. To that end, Pastor Hood shares stories from his experiences at LifePoint Church, a congregation with smalltown roots that has also planted churches in Bangkok, Thailand, and Brussels, Belgium, among other places.
How does man's heart move closer to God's heart? How do we "live sent" in our community or halfway around the world? What good things that happen in church life might actually threaten to obscure the greater things being orchestrated by God? How does everyone at church move from being a member to a missionary? Find out in The Sending Church.
