What if you inherited a ministry that was… well, dead? Or, what if you inherited a business that was several million dollars in debt? Maybe you are in that situation right now. As I look back into my previous ministry experiences, I’ve had to walk into ministry situations that had no clear vision or direction. What do you do when your surrounded with great people but the ministry itself wasn’t spiritually growing the people and attendance wasn’t growing either, something is dead!
When the light bulb goes off and you realize that the ministry isn’t growing internally or externally…you have a bigger challenge than just simply ministry itself…you MUST begin a process by transitioning the ministry by changing the leadership culture.
I will have a series of posts over the next few weeks on how to transition a leadership culture from a dead ministry to a growing and vibrant ministry. I’m not an expert, but over the last couple of years I’ve had the privilege to work with some amazing young leaders to do that very thing. I want to share my thoughts and lessons I’ve learned on a spiritual and practical level on how we ignited a process that brought change to our ministry and leadership culture! This will be fun!
