Dear Discipleship-First Friends,
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
This statement is attributed to the most influential management guru of our time, Peter Drucker, describes a reality church leaders must face in the pursuit of creating disciple-making churches.
A disciple-making church culture is what your church actually does in disciple-making; strategy is your plans on paper. Unfortunately, while we have good intentions to make disciples, our strategy and church culture do not always line up. What Drucker meant by “culture eats strategy for breakfast” was that lasting change in an organization comes only when the culture of an organization changes. Applying this to church, if you do not change the culture of a church, the church will not change. Many leaders fail to account for this reality.
We have developed a 10-minute book – a visual summary – to very simply and quickly explain the core of disciple-making culture. We ask that you read it and share it with your leaders so everyone can better understand what it means to have a disciple-making culture. Click the image below to download this great free resource!
