Buzz Conference – Thursday 28 June 2007 - Tim Stevens

Tim Stevens, of Granger Community Church, had some great things to share:

  • Most churches don't have buzz 'cause they're not having any impact
  • Impact derives from love.
  • "Would our community be any different if our church ceased to exist?" Would anyone notice?
  • Buzz comes from unexpected care.

  • Using Pop Culture

    • Five Ways to Respond to Pop Culture

      • Ignore it.
      • Separate from it.
      • Condemn it.
      • Embrace it.
      • Leverage it.

    • "Jesus is so obviously at work in Pop Culture…."
    • John 1:14a in the Message paraphrase: "The Word became flesh and blood,
      and moved into the neighborhood."
    • Paul used Pop Culture – Acts 17

    • 3 Ways to Use Pop Culture

      • As a hook
      • To lower folks' defenses
      • Find great art and redeem it
