Years ago, Pizza Hut had a business model that required sitting down in their restaurant if you wanted your pepperoni fix. Then Dominos Pizza came along as competition with a different model: they deliver. Just let them know where you are and they will bring it to you. I was downtown Atlanta watching fireworks once when a Dominos delivery guy walked by with a stack of pizzas. What tremendous entrepenueral spirit, to deliver pizzas in a crowd of ten thousand people.
That is a picture of the church in evangelism. There are some churches that hold to the “Pizza Hut” model. If you want to know about God, show up in their restaurant on Sunday morning from 11:00 to 12:00. That is the only way you are going to get the gospel. But other churches have followed the “Dominos” approach: they deliver. They realize that not many people are interested in coming to church. Therefore, they take the gospel to where people are. The Great Commission uses the word “GO.” God must want more of the Dominos strategy for evangelism.
How about this as a motto for your church: “WE DELIVER.”
