Quotebook: Ministry Design Determines Results

Wondering why your small group ministry is stuck?  Trying to figure out why you can’t connect more people?  Why your leader recruitment strategy didn’t work…again?

I love this line from Andy Stanley:

“Your ministry is perfectly designed to produce the results you’re currently experiencing.”

Here’s my encouragement.  As you mull over your stuckness, pay close attention to the idea that your results are not a fluke.  They are a result of the design.  If you want different results, you’ll need a different design.
