Eugene, Oregon (CNN) - A pastor in Eugene, Oregon is hoping to recruit members with a catchy, yet controversial slogan: church sucks.
Tony crank of "one love" church has been mailing out hundreds of fliers with the slogan to homes in the area.
He says he wants to create a place where people who have had bad church experiences in the past can reconnect to their faith.
"Some churches have become the kind of place where you point the finger and you condemn and you rebuke and are really quick to do it. And so I think that is definitely lending itself to people not wanting anything to do with church and thinking church sucks."
Crank believes churches around the world are focusing too much on sin and not enough on connecting people with god.
And he says, he knows at times his own church will also suck.
