Thinking Change?

Mar 31, 2008


Thinking about initiating a wide-scale change/transition initiative in your church or organization?  Here are a couple of questions worth asking before you dive in…

  1. Are we STRUCTURED for change?

    Is your church or organization structured in a way that will allow the
    RIGHT PEOPLE to lead and make decisions?  If not – do not proceed past GO….do NOT collect $200!

    First things first!!

    If you’re not structured for change, it doesn’t matter how passionate or
    committed you might be to it – there will always be a chance that the
    wrong people could step in to infiltrate, hijack, or sabotage the transition.

  2. Am I COMMITTED to change?

Perhaps the question should be….  "Am I committed to change – NO MATTER WHAT THE COST?

Am I willing to lose people?  Lose money?  Lose popularity?  Lose friendships?  Maybe even lose buildings?

Listen to me……..TRUE CHANGE is COSTLY!  There will be a cost!  And it will be painful.  It will be felt. 

There will be scars and bruises. 

Are you up for it?

Consider that question!  Because if you’re NOT fully, 100% committed, you better think twice before diving in – for YOUR sake AND for the sake of those who will believe in your vision and stand by you.
