Mark Batterson's Big Fail
Recently, I interviewed Mark Batterson, author of The Circlemaker, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, and Wild Goose Chase*. To those of us who are church planters, Mark is also the original "theatre church" pastor--he was gutsy enough to attempt church in a movie theatre! That church is National Community Church in Washington, D.C., which now meets in 6 locations around the D.C. area.
It was important to me to ask Mark about his big "fail." So many successful men and women in ministry have failed, but they're successful because they never quit. I think its important that the rest of us hear stories like this and don't give up on our God-given dreams when things don't go our way.
*I highly recommend any or all of his books. I've read some of them two to three times.
