i'm meeting up with these leadership coaching guys again next week, so i thought i'd post some learnings about leadership as it relates to multi-site ministry & being a campus pastor. i'm not a campus pastor or anything, but i think a lot of these principles will apply to my future in some way.
+ i have a lot of conversations with campus pastors or guys headed that way. i told several i would send these thoughts to them... easier to just write about them on here.
These are some great thoughts from Tony..
1. Leadership – the success of a campus pretty much depends on leadership! [besides God, of course.] (leadership is by far the most important factor!)
*This really needs to be someone with an entrepreneurial spirit.
even better if they have started something from scratch and led it to be successful.
6) i would love to add one = CALLING. i think success also depends on (at the very least) God calling the person to be the campus director/pastor. i think there's a big difference between being called & the church leaders just picking out some joker and asking him to go do it.
wow. all that sounds awesome and really gets me excited... maybe i'll end up doing that one day?
<& just so i don't leave you hanging, in case you're interested, here are quickly #2-5 on multi-site success>
2. Location – physical location & the facility itself. (if push came to shove, choose physical location over facility). Pretty essential.
