Cool Church Planters

Gary Lamb had a great post about church planters being more concerned with creating the next cool church rather than really reaching lost people. Here's a clip:

I have learned that most church planters REALLY don’t want to reach those far from God, they really want to do church in a cool way. There is a difference. Just because you have great video, loud music, dress casual, and use movie clips doesn’t mean you are reaching those far from God.
Two or three years ago I was toying with the idea that God might be leading me to plant a church one day. But, I felt like my motives weren't enough about actually reaching people. Maybe one day God will have us do that....but my heart needs some work first.
