Jeff and I have been in deep discussion about the future of Vista. We love our church and God has blessed us. Yet we know their are so many holes that need to be filled and vital decisions that must be made if we are to progress and evolve as a faith community.

We’ve spent a lot of time on vision asking some very important questions like:

  • Where do we see God leading us?
  • How are we going to get there?
  • What decisions do we need to make so we can move forward?
  • What risks do we need to take?
  • Where does faith play into the decision?

As a church plant it can sometimes take years to finally see a clear vision and understand the strengths and weaknesses of the church and staff. For instance, we know we have to make two immediate changes if we want to see fruit and keep momentum moving forward:

1. Admin: We are horrible at this. (who would have thought) We need skilled admin help asap.

2. Office Space: Our office can’t get high-speed Internet. So basically it’s a waste of time. We are looking to move locations asap.

I say that to say this. Every organization has weaknesses; the good organizations identify those weaknesses and put the right people in the right place so synergy is possible. If we fail to identify our weakness, then we will struggle to move forward. I think this is why many organizations lose or never gain momentum.

Every time an organization takes the “next-step,” they also have to deal with more issues. Maybe this is why most churches in America is less the 100?

We know this because our people tell us. They tell us in a good way. Because they love us and support the vision. We are a team and we need to hear from the team members. This is vital and also provides confirmation for the organization.

So we need to do better at admin, in order to do that we need a more efficient and creative office environment. Therefore, we need to take some risks to move forward, maybe spend a little more money and have faith that God will provide the resources.

What changes does your organization need to make?

    1. Admin: We are horrible at this.
    2. Office Space: Our office can’t get high-speed Internet. So basically it’s a waste of time. We are looking to move locations asap.
