You can’t expect to open a successful non-franchised burger chain in between Wendy’s, Burger King, McDonald’s and Sonic…unless you are Five Guys Burgers.  Seriously, why are people trying to do the exact same thing when it comes to church.  Start a church with jeans, rock band, casual dress, coffee and Danishes for the 15th time in the same community?  People aren’t going to pay attention unless its different, new, exciting.

Acworth, Georgia needs another church like a Kobayashi needs another hotdog.  However, pastors seem to be attracted to the big houses of Bent Water and are looking to get a piece of the action.  Consequently, in an area overly saturated with church plants, the planters keep coming.
