People begin mattering to them more than their buildings. Ministry is elevated over management. Innovation is given a priority over tradition. Risk-taking is valued over safety. Spiritual formation and missional engagement is a higher priority than program development and success. Leaders are encouraged to lead more than they manage. Excellence is pursued that goes beyond mediocrity.
