So You Want to Start Your Own Ministry, Part 2
post date: June 22, 2010
2. Almost everyone will encourage you, not all will support you.
3. People you “knew” would support you won’t. People you never expected to support you will. No rhyme or reason to this. And you can’t let it get to you when close friends pay no attention to what you are doing.
4. Find two or three things you can do well that you enjoy doing and just keep on doing them. This is the famous “hedgehog” principle.
5. Pick board members who share your vision and want to help you get the ministry off the ground. You’ll need lots of meetings early on.
6. Unless it’s a regional deal, get ready to travel. Nothing takes the place of people being there to see you in person.7. You need some early victories. It’s great to reach the world with your program on every channel, but start by getting your program on the local public-access channel at 3 AM on Thursday. Hey, it’s a start.
Tomorrow I’ll share what I regard as the most important consideration in starting a new ministry.
