Top 33 Victories Part 12

#12 – We took chances on people

This must be balanced with proven character, but you can’t wait forever before you let a person step up to a ministry role. I saw that with Mark our worship leader. While he was an extremely talented singer, he barely knew how to play guitar when we gave him the worship leader job. I would spend time teaching him chords and song transitions, and he would practice to get it right by Sunday. It was a calculated risk because while we wasn’t a virtuoso on the guitar, he was a godly man that believed in the church’s vision. So 4 years later, Mark can certainly hold his own on the guitar, but more importantly he is a vital player in our church’s leadership team. I thank God for people like him…
