Do You Have the Right Stuff?

Inc. magazine is a great source of innovative trends in the business world. There’s always a lot of information that is transferable to the church world as well. Take this story in the July/August issue, also available online here.

Before you start a company (or church, or new ministry in a church), ask yourself these 6 questions:

  1. Do you believe you have what it takes?
  2. Are you able to let other people down?
  3. How do you handle setbacks?
  4. Are you really an inventor rather than an entrepreneur?
  5. Can you accept that your organization may outgrow you?
  6. When you look in the mirror, does an entrepreneur look back?

Yeah, these are from a business magazine. But you can never go wrong as a leader if you keep asking the right questions when are considering starting a new ministry – or a new church.
