In My Desire to be “Seeker Friendly,” Am I Guilty of Concealing Jesus? by Carolyn Arends
A friend was involved for years in a weekly service intended to reach out to inner-city kids, the majority of whom had little church experience and no acknowledged relationship with Jesus.
If it had been up to me, I would have made those events “seeker-friendly.” I’d have focused on building relationships, avoiding anything too religious or high pressure. But my friend went a different way. Every week, he led worship, one song after another, always unabashedly about — or to — Jesus.
I’m sure some of the kids walked away and never looked back. But hundreds stayed. Many made decisions to follow Christ.
