As you and the pioneers in your church love and care for the unchurched in ways that bless their lives, those you serve will be skeptical, initially.

They’ll be wary that church people would serve without a hidden agenda, an ask, a “gotcha,” a hook.

As you continue to be with them for their benefit—and not for yours—their skepticism will be replaced with gratitude, then curiosity.
