Now, apply that to your struggling church.
An attitude shift can happen in a relatively short period of time if people are open to it. (Sometimes “if” is the biggest word in the world, isn’t it?)
You’ll now be facing in the right direction, which means the energy that was wasted dragging the church down will now be invested building the church up.
But that investment takes time.
The Greatness Marathon
Building a great church is a marathon, not a sprint.
It takes hard work, prayer, teamwork, assessment, trial-and-error, leadership, consistency, faith, trust-building, love and, above all, time. Lots of time.
There’s no shortcut to a great church.
But it is possible.
So keep at it.
Because once you get there, it’s so worth it.
