Transition workshops often miss this step…

Have you ever noticed something in transition workshops?

No matter how long they are and who teaches them, they often have the same message:

“Do this, this, this, and that, and don’t do that, that, that, and this, at the right time, in the right place, with the right people, and you’ll succeed.”

Clearly, something is missing here because what exactly is to be learned from this formula?

The fact of the matter is that the chances of getting everything right, while avoiding everything wrong, are fairly low.  Moreover, such is not an appropriate methodology for framing, and setting up a pastor for, ministry growth.

Instead, what if the new pastor presumed that the chances of things going wrong are higher than things going right?  And, what if the whole point of the transition were to anticipate this, prepare for it, and then use it to make gains that avoiding it never could?

That’s what our illumine. lunchshop series is about.

LUNCHSHOP

illumine.
