How Churches Fake God’s Work

Ray Ortlund and Immanuel Church in Nashville believe simplicity is biblical. While opening doors to approach Christ, they try not to clutter what God is doing with programming.

“When the Lord is at work, you don’t need heavy programs,” Ortlund tells fellow pastors Ryan Kelly and Darrin Patrick in this brief new video. “When the Lord isn’t at work, you probably have to fake it.”

Watch to see how Patrick explains the dilemma for pastors approached by well-meaning church members who want to start new programs. Kelly offers his perspective on our failure to love when we’re too busy with programs.
