Discovering your why will make life and ministry much easier. It will give life to your vision, mission and strategy. And it will enable you to prioritize.
In most churches, it’s not a lack of vision that’s the problem. It’s a lack of resources (people, money and stuff). And because of this lack of resources, it’s imperative that we learn to prioritize. Having clearly defined core values will enable us to say no to the wrong things in order to save resources for the right things. These “wrong things” may not be wrong for another organization; but they are wrong for us. Not every good thing is a God thing. It’s important to remember that God hasn’t called us to do everything… He’s called us to do our thing.
