Less is more. We hear this all the time. But I think it’s something that needs to be embraced, especially for smaller churches that rely on a lot of volunteers to keep the organization running. It’s so easy for visionaries to dream big, but many times they (me) never implement the vision-therefore the vision lies dormant in pile of unfulfilled dreams. 

Even simple church structure can become very complicated. We do four things at Vista. 

1. Sunday Experience. 

2. Kids

3. Small Group

4. Glocal Outreach

But that still does not include daily admin, assimilation, leadership development, counseling etc. It can be daunting when you put it all on paper. Every ministry seems to have a sub-ministry. 

At Vista we are trying to instill the importance of doing all things well. Which does not mean we will succeed in all things, but at least give it our best shot. In order to do that, we must keep everything simple.

Now if I can just figure out how to keep the simple, simple. I think that may be asking to much.

  1. Chris…great post! It’s funny though how challenging it can be to keep things “simple”…especially for dreamers/visionaries. Balancing “thinking big” and “acting simply” is difficult. And the more people that you add to the mix (i.e.- such as a church with volunteers) the greater the challenge to keep the “simple” principle intact. Great thoughts though!
