AND CONFERENCE: Tim Stevens (Breakout)

About Tim: For over 15 years, Tim’s leadership has helped Granger connect with people who think church is irrelevant. He has done this through the creative blending of architecture, strategy and technology. He’s acutely tuned in to popular culture and is instrumental in balancing operations, building creative teams and inspiring artists to brand each message series and sharpen the weekend experience. He’s co-authored the Simply Strategic book series using humor and practical principles to equip churches and ministry leaders, and in 2008 published Pop Goes the Church to challenge leaders to leverage the culture to reach their communities. You can read more on Tim at Leading Smart.

My Notes/Thoughts

  • Change is about constant communication.  It’s thinking, “Who needs to know about this, and who needs to know after that, and who needs to know after that.”
  • A lot of times the biggest influencer in the church s not the person in leadership roles.  These people need to be people that can help you communicate the change you are trying to implicate. (Think: the meeting before the meeting.)
  • Any times there is big change, everyone needs to be involved and focused on it at the same time.
  • “Church is not just a place you come to, it is what you are.”
  • There are a bunch of people that believe what Mark Beeson (head pastor) is doing is from God.  They will change with him and that my friends is true leadership when the people trust you that much.
  • Sometimes you need to think 10 years out. “10 years from now, how old will you be?” That’s scary to think about but I need to start thinking that way for our church.
  • There has to be a layers of ways to communicate the change to our people (face-to-face, e-mail, txting, etc.).  However, I still believe that the best way to communicate a change is face-to-face.

I like Tim.  He’s got interesting ideas for the church and how to lead people.  You should check him out and his book if you get the chance.
