Telling the Story: What’s Your Purpose?
Your congregation wants to know that they have purpose. Simon Senek, in his excellent TED Talk says that being able to answer the question of “why” you exist is the singular most important question for your congregation.
Giving becomes a lot easier too, if you believe in what you are doing. If you are going to church because it’s a habit and not out of a belief that you are a part of changing the world…for the love of God, stop. Life is too short. Find the passion within yourself and then help your congregation find its purpose too. The world (and Jesus) will thank you.
