Being Big

with 2 comments

Really like this post by Tim Stevens at leadingsmart.com

Tim and the rest of the senior team at Granger Community Church decided that…….

We will not be the team that leads a church so big and flabby that it is impossible to move.

I work for one of the largest companies in the world and I attend one of the largest churches in America, so I understand that being big definitely adds complexity to change and innovation.

However, being big is never a valid excuse for avoiding necessary change and innovation.

  1. One of the problems with being BIG is that it is hard for you to get out of our own way. But once you get going – being big is generally a huge (pardon the pun) advantage. Like inertia – objects in motion… But a quality staff – great leaders – and a Plan is key to getting things moving forward… No matter how big you are!
