As a staff team at CVC, we realized that we did not have a clear, consistent, and measurable definition of discipleship. We had not clearly articulated the profile of a disciple. Over the years, we had several different expressions of what a passionate follower of Christ looks like. The constant change meant that we confused our staff and our people. All of us weren't pulling in the same direction and we didn't even know it.
Clearly defining the “win” has helped to create more unity, synergy, and anti-silo-ism in our staff and among our leadership. The fly wheel is turning.
And now I am passionate about helping other churches develop their own unique expressions of the win - what a growing disciple looks like. I want to shout it from the rooftop: "Leaders, don’t lead another day in your church without nailing this down!" Clarity is a cure for burnout, lack of focused effort, disunity, silo-ism, and low performance on your team.
