Hey guy, great podcast. Per your request for comments and suggestions, I wanted to offer one up. The churches that I've heard use a version of the phrase "doing church differently" have all presented new, fresh, and creative ideas for communicating and attracting people on a Sunday morning, or to a large-group worship service. The integreation of media, graphics, staging, and adjusting the role of the main communicator is fantastic in today's changing landscape of church.

What I'd be interested in hearing about is what Granger does during the week to help people mature spiritually. Is there a small group strategy, or every person for themselves? Are there just specialized large group meetings going on throughout the week, like a Wednesday campus meeting, or tuesday men's meeting? I know that a form is nothing without the power behind it, so I know that no structure is the end all be all, but I was just wondering what yours is. Keep up the good work!

I'm curious how y'all interact with and live with being a "United Methodist" church. Do all your members know they are UNited Methodists? In what contexts do you talk about it?

again..podcast greatness!

Regarding the BIG WORDS segment suggestion in a previous episode Tony uses the word "denizen" which seems to stop down the cast for a second or two...

In a future cast could you share insights on how you are coordinating your communication pieces(Web-Enews-Bulletin)? GCC's really go together well.

Hey Guys!

Great podcast! I look forward to getting it each week. Wanted to include a request for a future program. I am an emerging leader and my gifts and talents lie in the area of administration and deatils. I am preparing myself to assume a role in a church that is very much like the one that you occupy at Granger. My question is what expereinces, education, seminars, etc can or should I be exposing myself to as I prepare to assume that role some day. Thanks guys
