Overcoming resistance to change

By Replant

Resistance to Change < Holy Discontent x Vision x First Steps

Leading congregational change is possible, just factor up the the discontent, communicate a clear vision and chart out a simple course.

Holy Discontent: The unquenchable Spirit-Initiated conviction that things are not as they should be—and that must change. 

Vision: A clear and compelling God given picture of the unique call placed upon a local body of believers to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

First Steps: A set of clear actionable items that will begin to lead the congregation toward fulfilling that vision.
