no perfect people allowed

No Perfect People AllowedLast summer, my wife and I visited Gateway Community Church in Austin, TX. We spent some time after the service with their pastor, John Burke, to talk about church planting in Austin. Some of the things we had read about the church stated that they were genuinely reaching a lot of unchurched people. Austin is a city that is very unchurched and isn’t considered an easy place to minister. After being on their campus for an evening, I had a sense that they truly are reaching a lot of people who aren’t just transferring in from another church. John Burke has recently published No Perfect People Allowed which talks about some of the thinking that has gone into creating the culture of Gateway. I haven’t yet read, or even ordered this book, but from what I saw there, I think it’s one that will be worth reading.
