Portable Church

"In the past (a church going mobile or portable) would have been a risky move on the part of a local church, but according to a survey by Dr. Ed Stetzer of the North American Mission Board, 79 percent of people don’t care where a church meets or respond positively to a church that doesn’t meet in a traditional church building. Dr. Stetzer goes on to say: “People matter much more than buildings do.

Those you want to reach are far more interested in how welcomed and loved they feel when they walk through your doors than they are about where you are meeting.” (The survey results, titled “Where Should a New Church Meet?”, can be found at
www.namb.net.)" From Collide Magazine
