In ministry, most churches and leaders try to be good at what everyone else is good at doing. We’re trying to improve our preaching, youth groups, kids’ curriculum, worship, environments, etc.
The problem is that we’re not blessed with the same gifts or called to the same types of ministries. Why not give yourself permission to be good at something that few others are striving to do?
Maybe you can be phenomenal at digging water wells, sponsoring kids, or impacting the world through 6 a.m. prayer gatherings. Maybe you’re called to serving your community with radical generosity, doing evangelism through Facebook, or leveraging your wealthy suburban church to support three struggling inner city churches.
Rather than being good at the usual ministries, be good at something you’re uniquely positioned to do. Be good at something different.
What is something different you (or your ministry) can do?
