The Pizza Illustration
Our actions come from our thinking.
This strategy is about changing the CULTURE of your members – which is a bit like a pizza base. In comparison the pizza toppings are like the various programs you have.
Only after creating a pizza base do you add the toppings to a pizza.
If you have many toppings but no pizza base you doesn’t have a pizza! Also, if you have many toppings placed on a mouldy or burnt pizza base, there will be no fixing it – and yet this is how many churches try to fix their ‘evangelistic woes’, with programs.
Our suggesting is that we get the culture (pizza base) right first. The rest come together quite easily if we do!
