Exponential Conference: Churches obsessed with 'more' won't survive in secular society, pastor says

Churches need to focus on "more Jesus" — or risk “not being in the game” within a few decades amid a nationwide decline in church attendance, a pastor and church planter has said. | Pexels

Instead of focusing on external elements, Western churches must shift from “more effort” to “more Jesus” to truly bring the fullness of God’s power to a dying world, Keri Ladouceur, a pastor at Vineyard Christian Church, advises. 

During the opening session of the Exponential Conference held in Washington, D.C., Ladouceur delivered a message titled “Made for More.” The theme of her message focused on Ephesians 1, which reads, in part: “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.”

 Ladouceur contended that Western churches are “obsessed” with the idea of “more.”
