Have you ever thought about WHY you do what you do?
Is it because you couldn’t find anything else to do?
Is it because you let somebody else tell you how you should spend your days?
If you answered YES to either of those questions, then STOP RIGHT NOW.
GO do something ELSE that ignites the very core of who you are.
If the reason you do what you do is anything less than BECAUSE YOU CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD DO RIGHT NOW, then it’s time for a change!
I call myself the CHIEF BROKER OF OPPORTUNITY.
I help churches fund their budgets.
I help pastors and church leaders do what seminary failed to prepare them to do … manage the pressure of dollars in the plate and people in the pew.
What’s really strange is that I stumbled into this world.
BUT it keeps getting bigger and BIGGER!
I met with a church yesterday that should be thriving, but it’s not. It’s struggling due to some things it can control and – like all of us – things it can’t control. I listened. We discussed. I left the meeting not sure the direction to take BUT I COULDN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM and the challenge before us.
Then it hit me.
An idea came to me that I thought might work.
I made a phone call.
It was well received.
So the work began.
I woke up early this morning … 4 AM … and wrote a proposal for this church to consider.
THEY LOVED IT!
Not because it was all about ME but because it was ALL ABOUT THEM … even better … the end result was FULL of POSSIBILITY!
And they said ….
LET’S DO IT!
Don’t we all love it when we put ourselves out there and someone else says that’s EXACTLY what I was looking for but couldn’t find. OF COURSE!
I help pastors and church leaders be successful balancing ministry and money. But MONEY is not the end result … it’s the vehicle that God provides to fund the ministry HE has called the CHURCH to accomplish, a unique purpose that only the CHURCH is designed to fulfill.
I do what I do because I believe …
the CHURCH CAN’T FAIL. There is no PLAN B.
The thought of playing a role in the Church realizing its God given potential is what gets me up early and keeps me up late. It’s what causes me to take on the challenge, even when it seems impossible.
I CAN’T HELP MYSELF. So I keep going. Why? BECAUSE I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE I WOULD BE DOING RIGHT NOW if I wasn’t doing what I do!
Why do you do what you do?
