Insight 349: FaithSoaring Churches Keep Moving Forward
Congregations seeking to transform are willing to keep moving forward in spite of the obstacles they encounter. They are prepared spiritually and emotionally for the unexpected. They are not discouraged by setbacks. They see each new challenge as an opportunity to learn something that will help them in the next phase of their ministry.
When leaders risk and try something challenging–even prophetic–and it does not work, they are not criticized but praised for their efforts. Together the leaders and perhaps even the whole congregation seek discernment from God as to what they need to learn from their current efforts.
