Establish goals that will put you on your knees
Reaching more people with the gospel
Talk in #’s
Maturing the congregation
Try to get them all in small groups – set # goals
Mid-week --- worship and learn….. set # goals
Membership---- set # goals
Launch strategic plan
Break down five year goals in to 12 month goals…. And then into monthly goals
Continually measure and monitor goals
Have staff accountability meetings
Make sure that every staff member is working on the team for the whole ministry rather than just their portion of the work. The local church must not become a federation of ministries. The church must be united in mission. The church is not a constellation of revolving orbiting ministries loosely held together. It must be a close knit network of ministry. Decentralization is not effective in the local church.
When you have to result to ultimatums in leadership it is usually a result of poor leadership up to that point.
We must stretch our leadership
We must lead with all diligence
If we don’t lead people are not going to continue to follow
We must GET IT DONE!
Turn vision into reality
Manage toward results
