Insight 263: FaithSoaring Churches Believe Effectiveness is More Important Than Loyalty
Congregations seeking to transform hunger for effectiveness in what they do rather than loyalty. While loyalty is a great quality, it can be taken too far. Yes, we hunger for loyalty to the Triune God. Yes, we hunger for loyalty to the mission and vision of our congregation. Yes, we hunger for loyalty to our personal Christian mission. These are good.
Loyalty taken too far is when we are loyal to a program long after its effectiveness and relevance is gone. Or, loyalty to staff persons whose effectiveness has passed, and their ministry needs to be renewed.
