Never Start a Ministry Without a Minister
Isn’t it exciting when you or your staff members come up with great new ideas to implement within your organization? Ideas are flowing, dreams are growing, and people are excited for all the great benefits that can come if the plans turn out successful! However, sometimes these projects don’t end up doing any good at all. In fact, within months things can appear as if the brilliant idea never existed at all. In this post by Dr. Kenneth Acha, he shares some of his own struggles in this area and gives practical guidance for how to avoid wasting your time for nothing.
In the last 8 years of serving orphans, I have tried to start new projects (ministries) that I thought would improve the lives of the orphans we serve and miserably failed several times. All of them were good things and since I grew up in poverty and knew that these things would benefit the kids, I thought that all the staff would rally around them and they would work. I was always praying about them that they should work, but they did not. Why did I fail? I started ministries without a minister! That is a terrible idea! Read more about this important lesson.
