Well, welcome back Bootcampers to the newly minted and freshly labeled, “Leading National Podcast” the Replant Bootcamp. We’re fresh off of the SBC annual meeting and happy to jump right into some great content related to Organizational and Spiritual health of the church.
Here are some of the highlights of this discussion, we’d also love to hear from you. Be sure to drop us a line, email or voice mail your comments.
Church health and Organizational Health
Why are numbers not a good metric to determine church health?
Church health and organizational health are two different things but they do influence each other.
Organizational health does influence and is influenced by church health (and vice versa) but they are not the same thing.
Church health markers
Love, unity, and maturity
Love, unity, and maturity are rightly pursued and promoted from the platform and the table ministries (mentioned last episode).
Love, unity, and maturity result in the Body of Christ loving each other well in biblical community and loving their communities well through gospel mission.
Organizational health markers
Decentralized leadership (Team)
De-personified alignment (Mission, vision, values, strategy throughout the org. not just lead pastor)
Dependable resources (finances, facilities, personnel, systems, and processes)
Don’t confuse having a healthy organization with having a healthy church. The org is only scaffolding for the body, like a trellis is for the vine.
