To close out his Next 2010 conference message, “The Church,” Kevin DeYoung gave a list of suggestions for how to be a difference maker in the local church. He said:  
• Find a good local church. 
• Get involved.
• Become a member. 
• Stay there as long as you can. 
• Put away thoughts of a revolution for a while.
• Join the plodding visionaries. 
• Go to church this Sunday and worship in Spirit and truth. 
• Be patient with your leaders. 
• Rejoice when the gospel is faithfully proclaimed.
• Bear with those who hurt you. 
• Give people the benefit of the doubt. 
• Say “hi” to the teenager that no one notices. 
• Welcome the old ladies with the blue hair and the young men with tattoos. 
• Volunteer for the nursery. 
• Attend the congregational meeting. 
• Bring your fried chicken to the potluck like everybody else. 
• Invite a friend. 
• Take a new couple out for coffee. 
• Give to the Christmas offering. 
• Sing like you mean it. 
• Be thankful someone vacuumed the carpet for you. 
• Enjoy the Sundays that “click.” 
• Pray extra hard on the Sundays that don’t. 
• And in all of this, do not despise the days and weeks and years of small things (Zechariah 4:8–10).
