I’d love to sit down with you and a cup of coffee to talk about these posts from November…
The Best of November(as of November 30, 2012)
1. Measuring Success in Your Church (November 14, 2012)
What if the amount of offerings and attendance are actually false proxies? What if working to see these numbers increase has resulted in spending time “improving the proxy instead of focusing on our original (more important) goal instead”?
2. 7 Habits of Great Coaches (November 8, 2012)
To be a great coach you have to cultivate the habits of great coaches. What do great coaches do? Do that!
3. Jesus Never Planted Churches (November 15, 2012)
The starting of local gatherings of believers that meet together on Sundays for worship and teaching was not the intended result of Jesus’ earthly ministry. Jesus didn’t come to earth to start churches! Jesus came to make disciples who make disciples!
4. Don’t Call Yourselves a Team Unless You are Teaming (November 3, 2012)
If the team isn’t actually contributing to shared outcomes and objectives, then it probably shouldn’t be called a team. Call it a group. Call it a committee. Just don’t call it a team.
5. Disciplemaking, A Cord of Wood, and A Cup of Coffee (November 12, 2012)
Today’s experience reminded me of the importance of being with people. You cannot disciple anyone from a distance. You have to spend time together. That takes intentionality. And availability.
