The church had always been welcoming to newcomers, but in recent years, there seemed to be a disconnect between the church and the community. People were busy with their lives, and the church wasn't doing enough to reach out to them and make them feel welcome. The pastor knew that he couldn't solve these problems alone, so he called a meeting with the church board to discuss the issues. They brainstormed ideas for fundraising events and community outreach programs, but they quickly realized that they needed more help.
That's when they decided to reach out to other churches in the area. They organized a meeting of local church leaders and began discussing their shared challenges. They talked about how to reach out to the community and how to collaborate on events and programs. They also shared ideas for fundraising and budgeting.Suddenly, issues began to arise.
That's when problems came to light that associations usually face -
- Lack of clear lines of responsibility and accountability
- Poor continuity in leadership
- Unwillingness to delegate and trust
- Lack of belongingness
- Poor administrative systems
