Dave Ferguson is the Lead Pastor of Community Christian Church in Chicago, co-author of The Big Idea, and Head Honcho of The NewThings Network. Dave lives and breathes Christ and the multi-site church. Next time you see him, ask about reaching a billion people for Christ. A billion? Man, I love God-sized dreams!
I recently asked Dave a couple of my favorite questions.
Scot: If you were to do it all over again, what would you do differently?
Dave: Do different? Lots..but here are a couple
- Make sure that I had a whole team of church planters and campus pastors on my team so I could start reproducing campuses, churches within the first 18 months.
- Raise more money.
- Spend more time in prayer listening to God.
Scot: What would you do the same?
Dave: Ok, here goes. Here are the things I would do the same…
- I would stay committed to the mission of Jesus through church planting and reproducing churches.
- I would accomplish the mission though a group of people who love each other and understand what it means to be a community.
- I would be understand the mission of Jesus to include my family and being committed to them.
