Flashback Friday: Grow Small Before You Go Big
Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!
The best ministry leaders are dreamers. Huge visionaries. Think-ten-years-ahead kind of people. They know what the end result should look like, and they stack strategies and fund budgets and build teams to move the dream down the field.
Leaders think big. They can’t help it. It tends to be hardwired in their DNA. But leaders also know that the strongest vision is cast to the smallest audience. They know that they receive a greater return on investment if their pitch goes to five rather than 5,000.
For example, I can ask a crowd of 1,000 to consider serving on one of our weekend volunteer teams. Once they fill out the card and reply to the email and sign up for the training and commit to a team, I might have ten that stick.
