Congregations seeking to transform know why they do everything they do. They know what contribution every program, ministry, and activity make to the spiritual strategic journey of the congregation. How they speed transformation. They know how everything aligns with the vision of the congregation. Nothing is wasted.
They have moved beyond business as usual—beyond doing things a certain way because that is the way we have always done things. They have stopped doing things that are ineffective and no longer contribute to vision fulfillment. They have allocated leadership, schedule, and financial resources to the most important things they do.
