LEAD SMALL – IMPACT BIG
A large ocean liner will have a huge rudder up to ten stories high to guide the ship. On the edge of the rudder is a miniature rudder called a trimtab. The trimtab is easily maneuverable and creates a low pressure that moves the huge rudder which steers the ship. A small effort produces a big impact. Steven Covey introduces this leadership skill as one of the habits of highly effective people. You can lead small and make a big impact.
Steve Stroope, lead pastor of Lake Pointe Church, is a highly effective pastor. Under his leadership, Lake Pointe has grown from 57 members in 1980 to a current attendance of more than 11,000. Steve “has spent three decades mastering the art of leading small in a church whose membership has multiplied from dozens to thousands.”
His newest book, Tribal Church – Lead Small, Impact BIG, explains how “great leaders begin by serving a core group of people who ripple outward for ever-extending social and spiritual impact. They go big by leading small.” Every church, regardless of size, is a collection of small tribes. Stroope writes, “Lake Pointe’s health and growth, to a large extent, is a result of passionately attending to what some would consider the little details and the smaller ‘tribes’ that make up our church.”
You are invited to hear Steve speak on how to lead small for a big impact at the Pastor’s Conference of Dallas Baptist Association on May 7. Each participant will also receive a free copy of Tribal Church. You can find out time and location information on our website. www.dba.net/pastors
