But Emil has this simple plan:
- Have a vision and a strategy
- Define reality
- Give hope
Each step is critical, but leaders struggle the most with execution. As Pastor James Emory Wright shared:
I recently tweeted about the importance of having a bias for action. Too often we have a “ready, aim, aim, aim…” mentality. Fire your dang gun! There comes a time to pull the trigger on action and decision.
Leaders, especially church leaders, hesitate to fire their dang gun because when they do the “CAVE” men come out. Every church has them. As my friend Rex Miller says, they are the ones that are:
CAVE men could kill Emil’s plan at Wendy’s, and they can kill the plan at your church. There comes a time for action and decision. Without it we become overrun by more courageous and decisive organizations.
Are there CAVE men in your church?
What is a Christ-like way to address their concerns while staying on the move?
