    I like his way of getting the message to his people. It makes them to strive to become leaders and teachers.

    The underlying goal of excellence in what we do as the church is admirable. The idea itself is awkward. Those far from God won’t pay to hear the truth usually, and those who love Christ often come regardless of excellence. What they won’t do for mediocre events is bring anyone. A better question may be, does this pass the “invite test,” meaning I’d be willing to invite my most skeptical neighbor because I won’t be embarrassed. Unless the answer is “yes” then it’s not a great evangelistic approach. Yet…cover charge has a better catch phrase. 🙂

    $20? He obviously comes from a rich neighborhood.. 🙂 I believe he is thinking about the “entertainment” that the church is today. You would have to PAY people $20 to sit and listen to just a Bible message these days.
