The 5 Defining Questions for Every Visionary Church Planter -by Will Mancini, Dec. 28, 2010.

I see these five tug-of-war ropes with every planter I meet. Each of these tensions starts with a defining question:

  1. Am I running from or photocopying the ministry DNA of where I am leaving?
  2. Will I build the church that’s in my head only, or the one that God will begin to grow?
  3. Will my definition of success be limited by the metrics of yesterday?
  4. Will I leverage the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lay a vision foundation?
  5. Will I choose to translate the DNA well to the core team or rely on my own talent?
