EPISODE #84 - LEADERSHIP AND OVERCOMING RESISTANCE TO CHANGE
/

The guys wrap up this series on overcoming resistance to change in a local church. This episode the guys focus on leadership.  By way of reminder, here is the change equation;

Holy Discontent + Vision + First Steps + Leadership > Resistance to Change

Leadership: a called, qualified and committed leader who navigates dangers, threats, challenges to the accomplishment of the vision-keeping the congregation united and focused and moving forward.

The leader can be a pastor or a group of lay leaders, we think churches are led best with a plurality of leaders who are often called Elders.

A key point is that whenever you, as a leader, encounter resistance to change you have to go back to vision. This is the key to renewing and reminding the people why you are there and what God has called you to do.

Resistance to Change: Any word, threat or act designed to derail, intimidate, slow or upend forward progress toward the accomplishment of God’s revealed vision

EPISODE #57 - CREATING AND CELEBRATING WINS TO BUILD MOMENTUM
/

In this episode the boys talk about the importance of celebrating wins along the way in Replanting. Why is this necessary? Because the work of Replanting is hard and difficult.

Here are some of the highlights

  • Celebrate small steps and wins
  • Find something to celebrate each weekend
  • Be sure to celebrate missional activity-even if it starts small
  • Celebrate changes in attitude and heart
  • Celebrate being part of something bigger (especially if you are part of a denomination)
  • Celebrate steps that your church is taking toward the accomplishment of your vision
  • Get someone outside your church to come in and help you see things you can celebrate

What wins are you celebrating? We’d love to hear from you-send us an email, a photo or a story.

EPISODE #56 - EQUIP AND EMPOWER LEADERS FOR CHANGE
/

2020 keeps on 2020ing – Arkansas winning football games, emus running wild in Jacksonville. The guys discuss these things and more.

This is the 4th episode in a series on change leadership:

At this point in the change leadership process it is important to equip and empower leaders and members of your church to do the work of ministry (Eph. 4:11-16).

  • Part of this process requires that you remove barriers to change leadership
    • Restrictive governing policies
    • Lack of needed skills/competency
    • Sacred Cows
    • Bullies — “Pastor, stop being nice”
    • Insufficient communication

“It isn’t the changes that do you in, it’s the transitions.” – William Bridges, Managing Transitions 

“One common mistake leaders make when introducing major change is assuming everyone who initially opposes the change is rebelling against their leadership. . . Some leaders misinterpret opposition from followers because they do not understand major change produces grief.” – Jeff Iorg, Leading Major Change

EPISODE #55 - CREATING AND COMMUNICATING A CLEAR VISION
/

After some small talk about the correct pronunciation of States, the guys talk about the importance of vision in replanting. Vision is a key ingredient for the work of a Pastor and Replanter. By way of reminder here are the initial steps of leading a change process

  • Stop and Pray
  • Define and Confront Reality
  • Build a Change Leadership Team
  • Discover and Communicate a Clear Vision for Replanting

Two core components in a Replanting Vision: Making Disciples and Missional Engagement

Vision = where we are trying to go

Mission = how we get there

Your church can have a unique expression in it’s expression of making disciples and missional engagement.

Vision is often discovered, defined and clarified through a process-we recommend you get outside help in facilitating discussion around discovering your vision.

But…don’t make the mistake of doing this alone or quickly.

In short the vision must be Clear, Compelling, and Biblical.

Our fearless leader, Mark Clifton’s book, Reclaiming Glory is a must read for every Pastor and Replanter.

EPISODE #54 – BUILDING A CHANGE LEADERSHIP TEAM

EPISODE #54 - BUILDING A CHANGE LEADERSHIP TEAM
/

In this episode the guys pick up where they left off last time-talking change leadership. To lead change in a Replant or Revitalization you are going to need help-how do you build a team to lead change? The guys break it down.

In examining your church you need to diagnose if you have a leadership problem or a followership problem.  Jimbo’s Quote:  A church can go much further with great followership and mediocre leadership than with mediocre followership, and great leadership.

Building a Change Leadership Team: Characteristics to look for

  • Character-are they growing in godliness?
  • Chemistry-is this someone I could sit with for 3 hours in a room at church talking ministry?
  • Competency-can they lead and serve?
  • Commitment-are they going to stick it out?
  • Credibility-do others follow them?

If you have a sending church or sponsoring church here are some important steps to consider:

  • Have a clear vision (write it down, share a prospectus with potential change team members)
  • Offer a clear opportunity for involvement
  • Ask for a commitment from them
  • Explain reality for them-they need to understand what they are likely to experience

  2. Create a Sense of Urgency

There’s never been a significant move of God apart from significant prayer. Listen or consult the show transcript below for specific info on how to incorporate prayer into your Replant.
