People Groups as “Targets”

Joel’s post yesterday was super.  It was courageous and thought provoking.  The comments to his post were well written, great, and appreciated.

I’d like to share a few thoughts concerning yesterday’s dialogue.  I will end with a simple question that I hope with solicit more ideas, experiences, and thoughts.

First, let’s strive to eradicate using the word “targets” when we are discussing reaching a certain people group.  Enough said.

Next, “like reaching like,” “birds of a feather flock together,” and “you reach who you are” seem obvious.  Yet, there are cells and cell churches around the world who are reaching a myriad/variety of people groups.  They are worshipping God in the same cell gathering and cell church.  How can this be so?

I believe there are three reasons.  First, the various people groups sense authenticity in leaders and members.  This reinforces this life lesson:  Be who you are, no one else is more qualified.  Second, love abounds.  Finally, (and certainly the most important reason) this cell and/or cell church has paved the way through intercession and prayer.

Now, my question.  Does your cell and/or cell church have an intentional strategy to reach a certain people group?  This blog community would love to hear from you.  Please comment.
