The key, Pastor, is to disproportionately invest your time and attention in the pioneers, the risk-takers, and the adventurers in your congregation. Lead the ones who are willing to be led by you!

Suspend that very powerful impulse to convince the resisters and to involve the belongers on the leading edge of change. They will watch from afar, and once it seems safe to them, they will begin to play.

In the meantime, have a blast with your pioneers.

Make a difference in the lives of those you’re serving.

Enjoy what God does in, through, and around you.
