We don’t know who made that statement, (though it’s been erroneously attributed to Peter Drucker), but there is a profound truth that the culture that we create has a dramatic impact upon any strategy that we try to implement in our organization.
This principle is commonly seen in the church world. Stories abound of pastors experiencing massive resistance to change even though a congregation may be in decline or even on the verge of shutting the doors. The culture that the church has embraced will not allow any attempts at change to happen. This often results in painful conflicts within the church that can deeply wound well-meaning people.
What if there was a way to bring the gospel into a community at the grass root level that can bring new life into congregations? Instead of looking at ways to adjust the church organization, what if we could let the gospel adjust our hearts so that strategies could be processed with the influence of the gospel?
That is what Gospelling Life Together is all about.
We have found that churches need to experience the change that only the gospel can bring before any changes can be implemented in the organization. This is key to renewing communities of faith.
Gospelling Life Together trains local leadership in how to apply the gospel to each other in an easy to use and practical way.
So before you try to bring change with another strategy, infuse the culture of your church with the gospel. Contact CMM to learn more about how Gospelling Life Together can help you congregation.
