In our house church this past week a question came up about what are known as “seeker churches”. Is the Wheatland Mission considered one? I must admit that I was once smitten by the “seeker sensitive” bug and to this day appreciate the ministry of Willow Creek, Bill Hybels and others who paved the way in this arena several years ago.
However, Wheatland is not “seeker sensitive” for several reasons. We are, and are still becoming, a missional church. That means that we are focused on God’s Kingdom, on Christ’s work in the world, and on following Jesus, incarnationally, into the world. In the video below Tim Keller spells out the differences effectively and kindly.
His last comment is not at all intended to scare away our last MBA.
