Planetshakers Dilemma?: Quality of Belief over Quantity of Believers?

with 2 comments

Planetshakers boasts to be one of the fastest growing AOG churches in history.

Let’s flip that coin for a moment…

Mike Yaconelli (until his death in a car accident in 2003) claimed to have “…the slowest growing church in America” in Yreka, California, and wrote several popular books for youth leaders.

Here’s a quote that was left on this blog, from Contemplative Youth Ministry by Mike Yaconelli.

“Remember always that human need is infinite, and that the number 5 bears the same relationship to infinity as does the number 5 million.

Therefore, wise persons are going to make conscious decisions that have a qualitative impact on infinity rather than a quantitative one”

  1. I loved Mike Yaconelli, as a youth leader in my native hometown, I read so many of his teachings and articles on youth leadership. His comment as you mentioned, is one of the many reasons why.
