“The easiest way to kill a ministry vision is to give it to the wrong person at the wrong time just because you are desperate to get it off the ground. We get caught in the trap of trying to ‘fill slots’ to staff a ministry instead of seeking and waiting for those with the passion, experience, and sense of call that are truly needed.” [Queen and Davis. Hopeful Imagination, 2014.]
Congregations seeking to transform are willing to wait for the right people and the right time. They move forward because their discernment of God’s movement in their midst says go.
