10 Advantages for doing Ministry without a Ministry Strategy
by Tony Morgan, Granger Community Church
- You give the loudest person the opportunity to decide what happens at your church.
- Sharp leaders who are accustomed to serving in organizations with clearly defined plans for future growth won’t stick around your church. That means more ministry for you!
- You’ll get to hone your debating skills as people argue about what to do next.
- More meetings! Where there’s no strategy, the meetings flourish.
- You don’t have to worry about celebrating success, because no one even knows what success looks like. It’s just better to keep that a secret.
- Some people call them church splits. We like to call them church plants. More mother churches!
- Rather than trying to discern God’s will for your ministry, you can just rely on dumb luck.
- You don’t have to pray as much, because there’s nothing to pray for. As an added bonus, that means you don’t have to develop as much faith either—whatever happens…happens.
- You can count your offerings a lot faster, because people will save their financial gifts for organizations that actually have a plan for the money they receive.
- Your lack of ministry strategy, which is a ministry strategy, will do just fine in Nothing, Arizona.
