If you can say the line above, you are unfortunately in the minority. One question I ask churches is, “Would you be so embarrassed with your church that you would never ask a friend or family member to join you at church?”
If that is the reality of how you feel there are two things to consider.
- Consider leaving that church yourself and finding some church where you would be so excited about being there you would invite someone new every week.
- Consider talking about why you wouldn’t and change the church you are attending.
Churches can’t grow when those who attend don’t feel comfortable bringing anyone there. In fact, some engage in the first answer because it’s seems a insurmountable task to change things. We need to not only love our church but love being there with the people we love.
