CFTROU 0005: Transitioning Your Traditional Church Part 3 – Set A Trajectory

Today we conclude our 3-part series about transitioning your traditional church by outlining how to set a trajectory for your future. If we find ourselves plowing on a rock, we need to find a way forward. We cannot always account for the dynamic environments within our churches, so any detailed plan we come up with today will quickly be irrelevant. We put the emphasis on setting a trajectory that we can adapt as changes come our way. A trajectory gives us a goal, a direction, and the ability to adapt our plan on the fly as the situation changes.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Hear why it is beneficial to set a trajectory in order to build an infrastructure and move forward.
  • Set a trajectory by defining what’s unique, different, and sets your church apart.
  • Understand the power of trajectory and how defining small wins is crucial.
  • Learn the importance of knowing church bylaws.
  • Understand how a multicultural representation in leadership positions changes the whole dynamic.
