Making Change At Your Church Without Losing Your Job

just got a weekly youth ministry email with a link to an article from youth ministry architects with some simple tips to creating change in your church, especially if you’re new in your leadership position. i can remember some classic mistakes i’ve made by not following these steps; if i had it would have saved me from a world of pain!

check this excerpt out, and head here for the rest!

Making changes in a 2,000-year-old institution can be tricky.  If you’re 20-something, and you haven’t earned any street cred in your new church, it can be absolutely dangerous. […] here’s a place to start. It’s a simple tool that creates the kind of trust and credibility that moves you from “whiner” to “winner” in the eyes of your volunteers and the church establishment.

Step 1) Make a list of everything you want to change at your church.

Step 2) Make a list of everything that everyone else wants to change at your church.

Step 3) Highlight the things that are on both lists, and fix those first.
