Congregations seeking to transform must be willing to re-evaluate program, ministries, and activities that drain resources rather than renew resources. Do these things add qualitative and quantitative value to the life and ministry of the congregation? Or, do they drain resources and just keep the congregation busy and unproductive?
What is an example? Resources include leadership persons and their time. Are leaders asked to serve on committees and lead programs that do not contribute to the spiritual and fellowship life of the congregation? Ask to what extent these add needed value to the life and ministry of the congregation.
