In a previous post (see it HERE), I mentioned the reorganization we are currently walking through as a staff. During the time spent preparing myself for the reorg, I’ve found a lot of wisdom from other pastors across the country talking about the need for leaders to ask the right questions of their church leadership and staff.
Here are a few of the most thought provoking questions that I’ve found are helping me direct the church at this time:
1. What’s in decline?
2. Where are we manufacturing energy?
3. What are our underlying faulty assumptions about the way we do ministry?
4. What would a great leader do if facing this decision?
5. What do we need to stop doing?
Not real profound stuff, but very profitable to wrestle through with your staff and leadership team. Maybe it’s time to start asking the right questions for you too.
