1. Have the Ability to Say No
Clarity not only attracts, it divides. With clarity you will have to say no.
Have you ever been to the Eye Doctor? He presents images for each eye and ask yes or no, better or worse.
Leaders must have the ability to say no.
Know This: At any church, and at any given time, there will always be 10% of the people who don’t like you.
2. Get Outside the Box
Houdini was a master at demonstrating the power of getting outside the box.
3. Quick Decision Making
Establish a culture of decision making.
4 Types of Decision Making Styles: (all four need to be a part of your culture)
1. Command Decisions – when decisions need to be on the spot.
2. Collaborative Decisions – team feedback decisions.
3. Consensus Decisions - body decisions
4. Convenience Decisions – when someone else needs to make the decision.
Overcome and adapt. Blessed are the flexible, for they will not be bent out of shape.
Culture moves fast. Life is predictably unpredictable. There needs to be an awareness of the need for flexibility.
If we are not careful, we can fossilize in our systems and ways of operation.
5. Make This Day That Day
Of all the advantages a leader has, it is the ability to see where you are going.
Seeing what needs to happen in order to move forward is a great thing – it helps lay the groundwork.
Start leading, planning and equipping like you are more than what you are – that way when you get “there” you can handle the increase.
Lay the groundwork and the need for: staff, rooms, ministries, events, budgets.
Frequently ask “What If” Questions:
- What if we see 20 new families?
- What if 100 visitors came on a Sunday?
- What if we start turning families away because of our nursery, children’s area, student ministry?
Plan today like your tomorrow is here!
6. Become Contagious Not Religious
Faith is contagious, Excitement is contagious, Joy is contagious!
If you will smile, be happy, be genuine – celebrate, not complain – love instead of condemn – lift up instead of load down – offer grace instead of grumble, you will attract people!
Be a church where people want to invite people to attend.
Ask: If you weren’t paid to go to your church would you attend?
7. Embrace Social Media
The first automobile instructors had a hard time getting people to press the brake instead of yell, Whoa!!!
It may be hard to imagine and you may be tempted to say Whoa – but social media is here to stay.
Find someone who understands it.
Post something once a day on Facebook: Scripture, pictures, etc.
Have someone take pictures and post them.
Social media is a free public relations campaign in your hands. It’s free fellowship, it’s fast fellowship and yet its effects last much longer than the moment.
Start with Facebook Try Instagram Try Vimeo
8. Value Experimentation
If the horse is dead dismount.
Remind the church that failure is more common than success.
Did Noah have any experience building a boat?
Did Abraham have any experience navigating to the Promise Land?
Did Peter know how to walk on water?
We must continually tweak current ministries and try new ones.
9. Move From Membership to Ownership
6 points of Sunday School from Arthur Flake
1. Attendance 2. On Time 3. Bible Brought 4. Offering 5. Prepared Lesson 6. Preaching Attendance
Philippians 3:12 – Paul was “owning” his walk with Christ.
10. Adjust People’s Priorities Not Just Their Schedules
The early church did more than add a time of worship and house meetings to the schedule. The early church changed people’s priorities about God, life, and mission.
Teach the value of living life on mission.
Schedule times of living life on mission.
Get them serving … often…with impact.
Show them a preferred future.
11. Practice 52 Quality Sundays
Act as if this Sunday is someone’s first.
Emphasize quality and quantity.
Put your best forward on Sunday.
Sunday is the first day of the week.
Train your church in this philosophy: If we get Sunday right we get the week right.
If we get God right we get everything else right.
Sunday needs to be a win for everybody.
Define the win for your leaders, for your members, for your visitors and for your mission.
Ask: What will make an impact on the lives of those who attend? Do not ask: What will they like – what will make them happy?
