You better be because we're here! 2011 is here and its fully intent on moving ahead with or without us, the nerve! As leaders in a growing and going church one of the hardest things we will ever have to do is to stay AHEAD of the church. In other words, we have to have a clear understanding of where we are headed, how we will lead to the desired destination, and what are the the necessary steps to take to get us to where God wants us to go and then the courage to take our church on this journey.
One of the things I will be moving our team towards is getting our hands OFF THE MINISTRY and ONTO THE MINISTERS. I'm not going to elaborate on that just yet, I want it to simmer a little bit.
So let me ask you, did 2010 go as expected for you as a leader? Whether it did or didn't THE PAST IS THE PAST, with all its successes and failures, THE PAST IS THE PAST. So embrace THE NOW, but begin this year with the END IN MIND. Fast forward to 2012, and write out what "happened" in 2011. As your writing, make sure its GOD SIZED! When your finished writing what "happened" in 2011, and your believe its God sized, begin WORKING BACKWARDS in making your part of JESUS' DREAM for GRANITE a reality.
Lastly, why not take a risk and share you 2011 story with someone on the team!
