Probably one of John Maxwell’s most popular quotes is, “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” So true! I’ve yet to come across anyone who disagrees with that statement. As we look toward “What’s Next” for the Church, the topic leadership must be a core component of the conversation.
What does the future hold for senior leaders and the teams they surround themselves with over the next 10 years and beyond? What does the role of the directional leader look like in the coming decades? How will he or she relate to their congregation? To their community? To the world? How will senior leadership team roles evolve? Should they?
As we prepare to gather our first group of churches as part of the What’s Next Leadership Community, we would love to hear from you regarding your hunches on ‘what’s next’ for your church. What questions are you wrestling with? What opportunities lie ahead? What challenges are you actively developing solutions for? What strengths do you believe God will leverage in the months and years ahead? Post your thoughts in the comments below.
