Takeaways from this episode…

How do you know what great looks like when the target is always moving?
-Great is relative; it depends on your vision.

3 words guide how we define a great experience environment at NLC: Intentional, relatable, and relational.

Intentional: everything you do is done on purpose. 
Define your destination.

Relatable: 
Jesus is relatable and relational. The cross is relatable and relational. 
You don’t need to work hard to make the gospel relevant, because it already is.
Don’t confuse relevance with style.

Relational: 
What you value from stage will become what is valued in your organization.

Be you.
