The boys are back (in their domiciles) and serving up another episode to you about implementing change in your Replant/Revitalization.  Congrats to Bootcamp Listener, Gary Hinkle-the winner of a new “black ops” Replant Bootcamp cap!  Get your very own Replant Bootcamp hat-the contest continues!

What to keep in mind as you are leading change

  • Operate as a team – avoid isolation
  • Communicate the vision – in as many ways as possible
  • Celebrate wins along the way – they show the sacrifice is worth it
  • Engage in strategic evaluation – from those on the change team and in the congregation
  • Maintain tension – keep things moving forward, you never arrive at the finish line.

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.

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.

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

This week the guys celebrate the arrival of Fall, Bob celebrates that his beloved and dismal Razorbacks are sitting atop the SEC leader board (having played no games.) Jimbo tells about his very eventful “view of a call” Sunday and the barf-O-rama that preceded it on Saturday night. Along the way they talk about leadership, prayer and creating a sense of urgency.

The Leadership Two-Step

  1. Stop and Pray
  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.

Here are some helpful resources to consult in your effort to lead change.

In this episode Bob and JimBo start a new segment called, ‘Stupid Stuff We Did and Survived’. JimBo will share a few stories of how he unwisely led facility changes. We invite you to laugh at us and with us during this episode. Hopefully you will be encouraged and challenged as well.

Some things to consider in leading change well

  • Cast a vision for change, don’t just make changes. When people understand and believe in the ‘WHY’ behind changes it is easier for them to get on board.
  • Communicate and then communicate some more. You cannot over-communicate.
  • Have compassion for how change impacts people. (Jeff Iorg does a great job of talking about this in his book, ‘Leading Major Change‘).
  • Move to a system where everything does not have to be voted on, but you still need to give people a voice in the process.
  • Create a diverse team of people to help lead change in the church.

What are some of your stories of leading change that didn’t go well?
