After spending the past ten years on the PEACE Plan around the world, Rick Warren has announced a shift in his vision after the PEACE ministry has matured. Warren will host a Purpose Driven Church Conference this month in order to begin moving toward his new vision of church renewal in America.
Why this story matters to church leaders:
Every significant ministry needs an end date or a set time for transition, and Rick Warren models this as he shifts his focus to church renewal after investing in the PEACE Plan for 10 years.
- Who Picks the End Date? Don’t wait for ministries to falter or struggle. Set your own end dates so that you can work toward a clear goal.
- Keep Looking Ahead: Vital ministry isn’t about maintaining what you have. Ministry must also look forward and plan for the future, shifting to meet new challenges.
- What season are you in? Are you in a season of renewal, change, or launching? How will you leave time to look to the future?
What is one thing that you need to complete in the next year?
