3 Instant Takeaways

      1. Sometimes we have to get over ourselves. Nik understands creatives and visionaries. He knows we want to do something big for the kingdom. But he reminds us that steps come before leaps. Churches that only want to move forward in big leaps might just be leaping to their own conclusion.
      2. Embrace good structure. Structure works in families, in schools, and in churches. Creating a structure can feel restricting — but it’s there to keep us out of harm’s way.
      3. Find the level of structure that works at your level. Mega-church structure might not work for your church. What elements of structure do you need? Just for starters: A vision statement. A brand. A style guide. A code of conduct.
