Insight 062: FaithSoaring Churches are Size Relevant
Congregations needing to transform often fantasize about their current size and leadership capacity. They focus on what they once were. Or, they focus on their image of what larger congregations do. Or, they focus on doing programs, ministries, and activities well beyond their resources without adding new leaders. Or, they declare that the right pastor or youth minister can bring the success they seek. Using these as a basis for transition and change leading to transformation is a fantasy.
Current reality must be accurately defined. Congregations should use their real gifts, skills or strengths, and preferences to move forward.
