“My role as a church leader is to empty the church”

Great interview with Adam Dyer from Yeovil Community Church by the IDEA magazine for the Evangelical Alliance.  I love this quote:

So my role as church leader isn’t to fill the church, but to empty the church – we run these projects not to get people in to the church but to get the church into the community. That idea that our neighbour is right there, that there’s brokenness  right there, that we can share this journey with people. Jesus came bringing the kingdom one act of love at a time, and we as a Church are invited into this movement.
