LEADERSHIP: Questions for a New Year

Some people set their ministry goals in the late summer or fall and others look at the New Year as a time for renewed energy and growth. Either way it's wise to stop and ask questions about what's going on, where you're going, or whether or not you're on the right track regarding your ministry. While these questions are geared toward a congregation, they might also fit for many families.

Questions for a New Year
  1. Are there particular people in your congregation or life who need prayers regarding their salvation?
  2. Whether members of the congregation or not, are there older folks in your neighborhood that your congregation or your family could help out more? 
  3. Have you made any goals with regard to your faith life? How are they going?
  4. Is there a book of the Bible that you've (as leaders) wanted to study?
  5. Is there a book of the Bible that you would like to encourage families in the congregation to study?
  6. Have you or has the congregation been distracted from its spiritual goals? 
  7. Do you have a goal that will change something in the church or your family in the next 5 or 10 years?
  8. Is there one thing you need to make a priority and put on the top of your list?
  9. How can you share the blessings (financial and otherwise) God has given your congregation with others? 
  10. Is there a new ministry that needs to be started to help minister to or reach out to people in the community?  
  11. Are you visible in the community as a strong Christian presence?
  12. In what area of ministry do you most need to change and do you have a plan to do so?
