Xcel Darlington is great. I know, I always say that but here’s the thing – it’s good and it has the potential to be so much better. Here’s what I am thinking…
…that to get us to the next level of growth will take more than me and Kerina being Pastors. It takes someone or many someone’s stepping up and taking ownership of Xcel Darlington – to do whatever it takes to create growth, connect with people, to build a thriving congregation.
…that I need to be more intentional in developing the team that consists of these people – talking about the culture of Xcel Darlington, of instilling some great leadership qualities in them, challenging them into sacrifice and really doing the ‘whatever’ that people often talk about.
…that without intentionality nothing changes and the danger is that in 6 months time we still have 80-100 people and never grow to 150-200.
If you are part of Xcel Darlington I’m thinking of doing some sort of intentional leadership training, just for 30-40 minutes, early on a Sunday morning, say 8.45am. What do you reckon? It would be challenging, stretching, it would be full-on leadership wisdom stuff – unpacking what Xcel Darlington could look like with 200 people and the type of people needed to make it happen.
It’s not a guarantee to greatness but it’s a start.
If you want to be a part of the next adventure for Xcel Darlington then let me know (even if you already have).
