“Ablaze! (R)” – “Torch your grandfather’s church!” – also an initiative to count good works – also an umbrella organization used to funnel money by closing down old inner city churches, selling the property, and using the funds to open coffee houses



The “lost” – Methodists, Baptists, and other nondenominational evangelicals who got lost on their way to church and end up in a Lutheran church which they now want to change to their liking


“Seekers” – baby boomers who are looking for their grown children in church, but they can’t find them, so they want a more hip 70’s style worship service to make themselves feel better and make their kids want to come back to church


“Executive” – well paid effective people who lead church leaders and who are willing to support any gimmick for the sake of attracting the lost and paying the bills.


“Mission” – a coffee house in your church


“Mission Trip” – layman’s vacation to a third world country


“Mission vision” – church executives envisioning a movement of more power, money and authority away from local congregations toward them


“Prayer” – requests for our will to be done in the most glorious way possible
