For your congregation to effectively move forward, how many spiritual and strategic priorities should you have? Three? Five? Seven? How many priorities are too few? How many are too many?
Did you know the word priority only existed in a singular form for the first five hundred years after it came into common use? It was primarily after World War II that it was expressed in a plural form and became priorities? If that is the case then the correct answer to how many spiritual and strategic priorities a congregation should have is one.
If you could only have one priority as a congregation, what should it be?
- To reach people for a Christ-centered, faith-based spiritual journey?
- To pay off the debt for your buildings?
- To connect the unchurched with your church for Christian discipleship?
- To grow you church bigger?
- To make disciples of Christ who make disciples of Christ?
- To make sure your church exists until you die?
- To call a pastor who will bring vision that your church can follow?
- To reach young adult families with children?
- To fill up your sanctuary with worshipers?
- To care for the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of your members?
If you could choose only one, which one would you choose? Which one is a worthy priority that fits your congregation and honors our God?
