Click here to see the other ideas on sustainability.
Over the last 5 weeks we've covered 10 ideas to sustain momentum. Now I'd like you to do two things for me. First, write me with something you have done that has sustained momentum and change at firstname.lastname@example.org. Second, take the following quiz to see where you can increase the sustain part of your ministry to men.
Rate your church on each of these ten ideas (1 = always, 2 = often, 3 = sometimes, 4 = little or never)
___ 1. All-Inclusive: We changed our church's perception of men's ministry.
___ 2. Relevant: We offer intentional content.
___ 3. Model: Our leadership team models what we're trying to create.
___ 4. Focus: We coordinate disciple-making methods around the same theme.
___ 5. A System: We reach new men by repeating the cycle.
___ 6. Service: We send our men who are ready to serve (but not before).
___ 7. Interdisciplinary: We foster interdisciplinary cooperation with other ministries.
___ 8. Expectations: We manage the expectations of the leadership team.
___ 9. Intergenerational: We emphasize the intergenerational transfer of spiritual wealth.
___ 10. A Shepherd Model: We recruit "shepherds" (vs. "teachers") to lead small groups.
Let me know what changes you plan to make and if we can help you in any way.
