Part 2 Your Church and The Future: Priorities, Handling Excuses, Building a Team

1.  Setting Priorities
Using a ‘plumb-line’ helps us determine what is ‘in line’ and what needs to change. The two plumb-lines Christ gave are The Great Commission and The Great Commandment. Getting with God and understanding His heart puts us in the place where we check ourselves against these plumb-lines. Do we take seriously the ministry of reconciliation and sharing Christ? The most successful pastors in America, who see rapid-sustained growth from people coming to Christ (conversions) instead of just transfers make sharing their faith a priority. They, on average, spend 4-5 hours per week in outreach. Second, the Great Commandment. Am I serving to grow my church or serving to love?

2.  Handling Excuses
People like to do the easy, fun, enjoyable ‘stuff’ and tend to forget the ‘work’. The hardest work of the Kingdom is reaching people for Christ. There is always an excuse to do something else. Handling excuses starts with how I live my life; how I set my priorities. If my priorities are right, there will be fruit from my own life. Seeing fruit goes a long way in stirring up people and challenging excuses! And, when I bear fruit I can make one of the most powerful calls, come, join with me. Staring with the point above, if you have go through a journey of plumb-lining your own life, take others on the same journey!

3.  Building a Team
It is all about priorities, first in my life as an example and then as an equipper of those around me.
Building a team is about building people. It is about selecting those people that you will invest your time and life in… imparting the things that God has laid on your heart. Then, finally – building a team is about giving ministry away – equipping and sending out. Isn’t that what Christ did? Scary at times, but the only way we will have a really good team. Send people out to minister together and then gather and learn from each other!
