People will try to hijack the vision of your church! In this episode, Loren and Carrie use the analogy of a cruise ship to identify four types of people you will have at your church, both in the first year and always. It is important to protect the vision of your church plant, and the couple gives some suggestions on how to do it, as well as how people interact differently with Carrie than with Loren.
The four types of people are
Crew members are those who are on board with the vision and engaged in ministry. Loren and Carrie share about how to help them keep from burning out.
Passengers are those who are aligned with the vision but are not engaged in ministry. Loren and Carrie share why this is not always bad, but how to help them eventually become crew members.
Stowaways are those who have been drug to church by someone.
Pirates are not aligned with the vision and might try to move the vision or your church plant in a different direction. Loren and Carrie share how to navigate this.
Carrie also shares the most important words she has learned in ministry while dealing with pirates in the church.
