The Strategy for Leading the Presence-Driven Church

Montana, between Bozeman and Livingston

The strategy for leading the Presence-Driven Church has nothing, initially, to do with strategizing. It's more radical than that. Here is how to lead and grow a Presence-Driven Church.

1. Abide in Christ. Dwell in God's presence. Have a praying life. Connect with God, like a branch attached to a tree. Become familiar with God. Teach your people to do the same.

2. Listen for the voice of God. Discern. Discernment is in direct proportion to familiarity. Teach your people to do the same.

3. When God calls you to do something, obey. Follow the Shepherd. Here is where strategizing can come in. 

That's it. 

There are no more steps along the way.

Teach your people to do likewise, following your example.
