Listen to the Story

Every community has a story - a unique story. Every community has a character, a "feel", and an attitude shaped by its own peculiar events and circumstances.

Does your church want to make an impact on your community in a meaningful way?

Listen to their story first.

Don't rush in with your plans and dreams and schemes for what you want to accomplish. First, you ask what's the story? What are the real issues, the real problems, the real needs?

He who answers before listening - that is his folly and his shame. Proverbs 18:13
