More Buzz

For the next few days I'm sure to be posting much more info from Buzz as well as my observations.

National Community Church

Theater Church Forum

Pastor Mark and Staff

Below are random notes taken during the Buzz Conference’s Theater Church Forum. This forum could have been a day-long event in my opinion but it was good enough to get some solid thoughts. Note: Just because I wrote it down doesn’t mean I wasn’t aware of the truth. It’s just good to hear some things again.

Mark Batterson:

“I don’t think it’s possible to have too many signs.”

On Redeeming places for God’s purposes: “We built a place where people will come 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.

**“We are Theatonians by conviction, not convenience.”

Hospitality- “Meet one, greet all”

Mark reads books on color theory.

“Every two years we have a church planter in residence and then we send them out to plant.”

Staff Q and A:


Five years ago the nursery was Pastor Mark’s kids on a sheet. Now in two locations with multiple classes.

Children’s Ministry:

On a semester system. We operate with the rythem of the city. We provide entry and exit points. Out of the two weeks they serve a month, they will teach one and assist one.

Semesters for Small Groups:

Spring: 1st week of Feb to April.

May: OFF

Summer: June and July

August: OFF

Winter: Labor Day to Christmas

Small Groups:

Two weeks before small group semesters they make a big push.

The preaching, magazine and videos all push for small groups.

Heather’s comment: “ I know if we did a good job if people are reading the magazine during Pastor Mark’s message.”
