Eugene, OR (CNN) - A pastor in Oregon hopes to recruit members with a catchy, but controversial slogan: 'Church Sucks.'

The church pastor has been mailing out hundreds of fliers with the slogan to homes in the area.

He's looking to create a place where people who have not had the best church experiences in the past to reconnect to their faith.

Pastor Tony Crank says, "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."

He believes churches around the world are focusing not enough on connecting people with God.
