Competition I. Be your own competitor. Never compare your church to great churches. Keep stats. Compare year to year stats. Pay attention to manpower or the number of man hours out on the streets for the week. Increase your soul winning attendance. 20=200;30=300 on Sunday.
Competition II. Dr. John Rice gave this advice to me-“Give me a 100 on soul winning visitation night and I’ll eventually give you a 1,000 in attendance on Sunday. Everybody wants the 1,000, but no one works for the 100 on soul winning visitation night.” That became my focus.
