I was talking with Rick Gerhardt yesterday and came up with a saying:

We want missionaries not crusaders.

Missionaries seek to serve, reach and and build up, while crusaders look to critique, wage war and tear down.

I have no desire for Antioch to become the biggest church around. I do, however, have the desire to be one of the most united, focused and committed churches around.

We want missionaries… not crusaders.
