Thought for the Day: You have a place in God’s Plan
Pastorpreneurs constantly are looking to mobilize, leverage, and maximize the gifts of God’s people for Kingdom Impact. Christian Business Leaders and Entrepreneurial Pastors alike are aware that God’s calling and their Community’s needs require that the gifts that God has entrusted to the community of faith be identified and utilized for Kingdom Impact. Many pastorpreneurs learn to think “outside the box” when they recognize the unique gifts that God has given to them.
In our own local community, the expressed needs of people relate to wholesome activities for children/youth and a way to connect faith and recreation together. Though our church has only been around for 6 years, we are seeing the start of some exciting things:
A martial arts program where 50% of the participants don’t attend our church; the ministry leader has wanted to launch such a program for 10 years but couldn’t find the right setting
A dance ministry led by a woman who has had her life transformed by God’s grace and now uses her skills to the glory of God
A sports ministry led by a former pro football player that is just now starting to see tremendous synergy in our local community by connecting children/youth and families in positive recreational environments
A recovery ministry that has become an “Umbrella of Safety” for people in our community
A marketing ministry that creatively communicates the life changing message of God’s love using contemporary media
These are just 5 of the more than 30 ministries that exist in our church. NONE of these ministries would or perhaps even should exist in our church EXCEPT that God entrusted specific gifts to His people and they want in the game! One of the greatest joys of a PastorPreneur is to identify your gifts, help others identify their gifts, and then mobilize and release people for Kingdom Impact! How many spiritual gifts are laying around unopened in your life or in the lives of those you lead?
