Larry Brey, Assimilation Pastor at Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC had the following thoughts to share on the Access Elevation Blog. Pastor Brey was examining the idea of closing the back door – keeping people in you church when they visit.

As you evaluate your own church and assimilation strategy ask yourself a few questions:
What is the vision of your church?
What do you want the culture of your church to look like?
What does it mean to be a part of your church?
Who does Sunday morning exist for, is it for the exhortation of the believer or is it for those who are far from God?
The answers to these questions will tell you a lot about what your doors need to look like.
