7 Question to Innovate Creative Solutions in Ministry during Uncertain Times

7 Question to Innovate Creative Solutions in Ministry during Uncertain Times

History will tell the story how the Church decided to act in faith and be the Church in crisis.

Last Tuesday Gina (my wife) and I made an executive decision for our small group.  We have a wonderful host couple that open their home so that our group of 5-17 members (depending on the week) can meet on Tuesday evenings for about 28 weeks throughout the year.  A number of our participants have compromised immune systems or loved ones who are at greater risk than the general population.  Last weekend our church, like about many other congregations across the country, launched their first-ever online worship service.

Back to our small group.  I discussed the situation with Gina and we came up with a solution.  Due to the the various reasons above – we moved our small group gathering to a virtual format, using Zoom.  This is not an original idea with us.  In fact, this might seem old school for many.  But, it was an innovative solution to a real and pressing issue.

This allowed our group to meet without concerns for the health of our people who deal with compromised immune systems.  More importantly, this removed the excuse not to meet.  Check-out the list of questions below to consider creative solutions to complex problems.

7 Questions to Innovate Creative Solutions in Ministry during Uncertain Times
  1. What is influencing our decisions as we navigate this crisis?
  2. How can we leverage the circumstances the crisis is presenting, to move the mission of Jesus forward?
  3. Brainstorm a list of ideas that come to mind.
  4. Narrow the list to the best 3-5 ideas.
  5. What are the pros and cons of each idea?
  6. Choose the best idea that you can execute within a certain timeframe.
  7. What are the necessary steps to implement this idea.

Going to an online platform to keep your church connected might be the direction you need to move right now.  This forced migration might be the best thing for your congregation.  Perhaps, online isn’t something you need to do and there are other considerations that will allow you to capitalize on the opportunity?

Who is the ideal candidate for the Leadership Collective?

Who is the ideal candidate for the Leadership Collective?

I want to introduce you to Micah Dodson, who I am collaborating with for the Leadership Collective 2020.  We have known each other for some time and I thought you would find his description of the type of leader who will benefit most from a Leadership Collective, informative and inspiring.

The ideal candidate for the Leadership Collective is someone that recognizes the need and value of training leaders. It is someone that wants to hand off ministry to others. It is someone who wants to equip and send leaders. The candidates that we are hoping to serve are people that will hand off what’s been entrusted to faithful people that will hand it off to generations of leaders.

Read 3 insights Micah shares about the leaders who will benefit most from a Leadership Collective:
  1. Leaders who recognize the need and value of training other leaders..
  2. Leaders that want to hand off ministry to others.
  3. Leaders who want to send leaders.

What is the purpose of the Leadership Collective?

What is the purpose of the Leadership Collective?

I want to introduce you to Micah Dodson.  We are collaborating for the Leadership Collective 2020.  Last week I asked him to tell you about himself, his background in ministry and vision to assess and coach church planters – CLICK HERE to read more.  We have known each other for some time and I thought you would find his motivation for a Leadership Collective inspiring.

The 2020 Leadership Collective will be an important catalyst for leaders that are looking to multiply their influence. Often times leaders get excited about the concepts of multiplication, but are unable to execute at implementation. We know that the harvest is ripe, that we are called to pray for harvest workers, and that we are called to make disciples, but that knowledge can be diluted by the pressures they face day in and day out.

Here are 3 insights Micah shares about the purpose for the Leadership Collective:
  1. Multiplication is a compelling vision, but leaders need help implementing this all-important principle.
  2. Multiplication gives way to the “tyranny of the urgent” – leaders lose sit of the big picture.
  3. Multiplication at all levels of the church, begins with disciplemaking at it’s core.

The Leadership Collective will be a vital input into your leadership that gives you the opportunity to work on your church not just in your church. Through a combination of training times and monthly coaching, we will serve to help you develop a platform of disciplemaking that leads to a culture of leadership development, and eventually results in continuous multiplication. Simply put, the Leadership Collective will help you move multiplication from an aspirational value to a daily practice.

That last statement is worth highlighting.  There exists a lot of resources that talk about making the shift from “addition” to “multiplication”.  If it was simple then everyone would be doing it.  That is WHY we are collaborating on the Leadership Collective.

Who in your network, has a vision to accelerate the process of making disciples and empowering leaders?  Please CLICK HERE for more information.  Next week I will share what Micah had to say about the type of leaders who will benefit most from a Leadership Collective.
