2017 Leadership Institute: Mobilizing People and Making Ministry Happen


GA2017LI-MobilizingPeopleIn the 2017 Leadership Institute seminar Mobilizing People and Making Ministry Happen, Bill Rasch of the EPC GO Center explained how to build consensus and pursuit of a vision in the church.

“Unity takes time and effort, and has to be continually nurtured,” he said. “We have to start with ‘how’ and ‘why,’ not ‘what.’ More people will connect on a deeper level with the who and why of what you are doing, and not necessarily the what.”

Rasch also referenced sociological studies that reveal 84 percent of people will not catch a new vision right away. “Start with the innovators and early adopters, who typically represent 16 percent of your community and will drive the vision and implementation of the vision.”
