When Jim Henderson of Off The Map was still a pastor he started paying people to go to church. Jim wanted to know what outsiders thought of his church so he offered them $25 to visit and give him feedback. You can read more about that in the opening chapters of Jim and Casper go to Church.
(Note: if you rate churches outside the U.S. please put the city and country in the city field and leave the state field blank.)
Itâ€™s interesting to see how people react to the concept of rating churches. What do you think?
- Is rating churches appropriate or inappropriate?
- Is it too subjective to have any meaning?
- What about outsiders rating churches?
- Should Christians care what outsiders think of their churches?
