Moneyball for Churches

This blog post is neither about Money nor Baseball!

Rethinking Church Planting


There are scores of white collar, middle and upper income, educated, successful professionals in our churches who have untapped capacity in terms of their time and energy. These guys can be motivated and equipped to plant churches.
Comment: Moneyball  is fundamentally about player evaluation and winning with the most cost-efficient use of talent. The book was made into a movie starring Brad Pitt. What this has to do with church:

  • Every Christian has a set of spiritual gifts sovereignly granted by the Holy Spirit
  • Every Christian additionally has talents, abilities and life experiences
  • Wise church leadership will strategically utilize those whom God has lead to that local church
  • To not tap that talent is ... well foolish and a waste.
