Why the Church Needs More Spiritual Entrepreneurs, Not Shepherds

Don’t just leave a comment, tap someone on the shoulder.

Feel free to leave a comment, but please don’t stop there.

The church has plenty of opinions but not nearly enough capable leaders.

So here’s my challenge … why don’t you tap an entrepreneur you know on the shoulder today and ask him or her, “Have you ever considered ministry?”

Think about it.

Who do you know who might be in business today who could be in ministry tomorrow?

My guess is that there are people who are running businesses and leading in organizations who have the gifts for ministry but have never thought about ministry.

And maybe they’ve never thought about ministry because they’ve never seen anyone with their gift set use it for ministry. (You know that’s one way calls often happen, right? God uses human conversations to stir massive redirections of people’s lives.)

So while I am very interested in what you think (please comment), seriously, don’t just leave a comment, tap someone on the shoulder.
