Next time I meet with my coaches we will process M. Scott Boren’s book, â€œHow Do We Get There From Hereâ€ by turning the pages from front cover to back. We have all finished reading this one and now we want to take on some dialogue as to how the material relates to us in the various stages of transformation. It should be fast-paced and highly interactive and hopefully a bit of fun too.
The part I look forward to most is the interaction with others in discovery of Vision, Strategy, Values, Practices, Priorities and Principles. While we are not “reinventing the wheel” in this exercise, we are looking to strengthen our vision team and tighten up our processes that will lead to greater and more fruitful ministry.
Next week we will meet with Joel, share our results and receive additional coaching from him. We don’t need to “go it alone” in the ministry of cell church! There have been too many times in my life and ministry where saying “No thanks, I can do this myself” has cost me time and additional effort, ending in failure. Pride still precedes a fall and we are saving ourselves the trip, pun intended.
