It has been my experience in ministry that vision can hit a plateau and stagnate. I have felt the grind of “I’m doing all I can, but the church isn’t moving in the right direction.” I have had to sit down and ask myself ten questions. When I do this carefully and determine to change how I lead my church, I have been able to make things change – not through some sort of a quick fix but with a slow turning of the flywheel.
As you read these questions, ask them of yourself. They will help you determine if what you are doing is really working to achieve vision and God’s purpose for His Church.
10 Questions All Leaders Should Ask:
1. I lead, but do I produce leaders?
2. I preach, but do I equip?
3. I work hard, but do I delegate?
4. I raise money, but do I build a culture of generosity?
5. I find volunteers, but do I keep volunteers?
6. I dream big, but do I dream strategically?
7. I have strong convictions, but do I learn from others?
8. I believe in evangelism, but do I build an evangelism culture?
9. I worship, but do I build a worship culture?
10. I grow the church, but do I pace the church?
As a leader, you are responsible to cast vision, grow it and keep it healthy. The leaders around you are your responsibility to also keep healthy. Take some time to evaluate your leadership and the health of those around you. Find your pace, keep your rhythm and stay the course!
