But honestly, when you think about it, the ministries that make a genuine, lasting impact in reaching unbelievers or edifying Christians happen person-to-person or in small groups. We have a grass-roots faith, a down-to-earth religion that exalts those who take a towel and wash the feet of their brothers and sisters. We serve a Savior who deliberately chose obscurity and whose story should teach us to distrust the “multitudes.” The first leaders in the church were not CEO’s but servants who walked the dusty roads of the Roman Empire, paid their own way by working in the marketplace, and met with their fellow believers in homes. The early Christians met and prayed as they ate meals around the table together.
