Insight 020: FaithSoaring Churches Focus on Signs of Health and Strength
Transforming congregations does not happen by correcting what is wrong or weak about a congregation. Kennon Callahan said years ago that you can correct everything wrong with a congregation and bring it right up to neutral.
Transforming congregations takes place by affirming what is right about a congregation and building on this foundation. It begins by exploring the increased signs of health and strength in the life and ministry of a congregation over the past 12 months. This means the transformation of a congregation is most likely to occur among congregations who are in movement rather than at rest.
