Church Is a Team Sport

Share via:

Picked up a copy of Church Is a Team Sport: A Championship Strategy for Doing Ministry Together by Pastor Jim Putman of Real Life Ministries in Post Falls, Idaho.  With attendance of 8,000 on the weekend, this 8 year old church is one of the fastest growing churches in America.  Even more impressive?  They’re in a city of 10,000 and a drive-time population of 100,000.   Even more significant?  They’ve connected over 7,000 adults in small groups!

Very interesting stuff.  Want to check it out for yourself?  You can order your copy RIGHT HERE.

    Just an FYI, Post Falls has a population of 27,000 and Kootenai County is 130,000. Our drive-time population (less than an hour) is over 500,000. Still, the numbers are pretty insane for the area.

    Thanks for the updated info Christina! That’s a larger population than the book shows…but the “drive time” I referred to was a 25 mile radius.

    Around here, 25 miles is anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour drive time, simply depending upon where you live (mostly on the lower end of the drive time). There just simply isn’t the traffic like there is in other areas – unless of course you live 8 miles away and that can take 25 minutes (driving directly through towns can be lengthy).
