Transforming congregations increasingly takes a commitment to continual innovation and excellence. Good enough is never good enough in congregations desiring to transform.
Continual innovation is not about changing the core commitments to the Christian faith or the core values of a congregation. It is about discovering new methodologies that effectively communicate with people connecting with the congregation. It varies the practices of the congregation to keep them captivating.
Congregational leaders who truly yearn for a congregation in the Transformation Zone love continual innovation. They know we never arrive in what we are doing as Philippians 3:14-16 tells us.
