Many times when we talk about church revitalization, we talk about change. And when you change things, you will need a guiding coalition to help implement and support the change.
- Influence grows exponentially when you enlist supporters to help carry out a vision.
- It’s imperative for pastors to do a lot of listening when they are leading a church toward change.
- The history of a church can often help define the present and project the future.
- Roadblocks are most easily and most often overcome through relationships.
The seven reasons we discuss are:
- The coalition has webs of relationships.
- The coalition has built trust the pastor may not have.
- The coalition is critical to understand the history of the church.
- The coalition can handle roadblocks.
- The coalition can be a source of encouragement.
- The coalition should be a source of accountability.
- The coalition can provide the wisdom of crowds.
