Ministry Dreams

Brad M. Griffin | Feb 24, 2011

This week we are hosting our second Sticky Faith Learning Cohort of 16 churches for their first summit in Pasadena. As part of our pre-assessment for this year-long process, we ask this question:

If you could wave a magic wand and change 3 things about your ministry, what would they be?

Heres a sampling of these leaders dreams for their ministries:

  • Parents of our students would have a deeper level of spiritual maturity that they could draw upon to disciple their kids.
  • Students would approach their faith, alongside their parents, with the same passion and energy that they use to prepare to get into the college of their dreams.
  • Change our worship service culture to allow for kids more easily
  • Parental involvement would be higher.
  • To have more capacity to dream and plan big-picture as well as try new things—seems like we don’t have much margin so that gets squeezed out quickly.
  • More time with my family.
  • That our elders would be willing to do whatever it takes to help children, youth and parents.
  • Three more wishes

What about you? What are some of your ministry dreams for this year?
