When we’re entering into a new season, I always challenge our leaders to have a higher threshold for chaos.
Systems tend to produce predictable outcomes. When we are innovating and growing, we never know what the outcome will be.
Many “great” ideas bomb. Then God seems to bless some average ideas in a big way.
While we are willing to allow things to get a little messy, we also work hard to make sure we are students.
- What is God showing us?
- What did we learn from the last failure?
- What success is hidden in the last failure?
Our church is currently moving into a season of discovery. Once we discern what God wants us to know, we’ll recruit the right people. Then we’ll build systems and enjoy the ride—until God leads us into a learning and chaotic period again.
Personally, these are my favorite times!
