Insight 253: FaithSoaring Churches Deal with Sacred Programs
Congregations seeking to transform are committed to the big picture of process. They desire to be captivated by God’s vision for their future. They can focus on the process of adult disciplemaking. They are not controlled by their management groups.
Especially they are not controlled by one or two stellar programs that seem to outshine everything else that happens in the congregation, and seem to attract a lot of resources and praise. This is a bad thing? Not bad. But a dominating program can become the vision rather than God’s vision being that which captivates the congregation.
