This clip is by no means fresh or new (particularly since I first saw it on some else’s blog 6 months ago), but I loved the idea of the Elephant Room. If you didn’t hear about the Elephant Room, it was a pastor “conference” where instead of having the speakers giving a lecture, two pastors/leaders were put against one another on a subject where they disagreed. The line up was very close to being tailored made for me.
As you will see in this clip, they put Steven Furtick and Matt Chandler against one another (which is like a dream match up for me). I appreciate the creativity, professionalism, and audacious faith of Furtick’s church. On the flip side, I love Chandler for his clear, relevant, engaging, and expository teaching. I am to be a mix of the two.
So watching the two of them debate one another on their differences and faults is like a dream come true. Here’s a clip. I think I bought the DVD set based off of the strength of this clip alone.
