Sobering comment from George Barna:
Sobering comment from George Barna: “The strategy was flawed because it had an assumption. The assumption was that the people in leadership are actually leaders. [I thought] all I need to do is give them the right information and they can draw the right conclusions?.Most people who are in positions of leadership in local churches aren’t leaders. They’re great people, but they’re not really leaders.”
I’m thinking about a way that I can do what I like to do and do well, to change the way most churches are done, which is to say same-old same-old, and fortress-mentality; and to spotlight the ones that are progressive, innovative, creative, and inspiring and freeing people to their God-created potential.. albeit not the model planner, it’d be more than difficult for me to pull it off, but if I can collaborate with some pragmatic types, we might see a revolution in my time..
