Turning Ideas Into Action

One of the most difficult tasks church leaders face is taking ideas, even good ideas, from the discussion stage through implementation and incorporation, and evolving them into the customs, traditions and history of the congregation. To help faith communities think about what it means to engage in the work of transforming ideas into action, the Indianapolis Center for Congregations, which is dedicated to supporting and strengthening Indiana congregations, published an article summarizing the efforts of four congregations, followed by several discussion questions and resources to help leaders assess their congregation and successfully implement change. The downloadable PDF formatted report is archived on the center’s website and offers inspiration to pastors and church leaders who want to act on their great ideas.
