Where There’s Slack There’s Lack – New Eight Week Series


I’ve been playing with this phrase in my mind for quite a while now. It’s a true statement, don’t you agree? Where there’s slack (in energy or effort), there will be lack… a lack of fruit, a lack of results, a lack of passion…

Healthy Systems Healthy Church A FREE Report by Nelson SearcyThose of you who are familiar with me and with Church Leader Insights are pretty well versed in the eight systems of the church. You know that your church is a bundle of systems that God works through to keep everything on track. There’s the Evangelism System that helps you reach new people, the Assimilation System that allows you to smoothly integrate newcomers, the Worship Planning System that makes sure your weekend service is the best it can be, etc. (If you aren’t familiar with the eight systems, let me encourage you to download this free Church Systems report and learn about them.)

Like with any system, these eight systems give us what they are designed to give us. If we are slack in building or maintaining them, they will not produce the results we want. We have to do our part to make sure that all eight systems are set up and functioning correctly, so that our churches will be healthy and growing…

You may be saying, “Yeah, Nelson. We know. What’s the point?” Well, let me ask you a question. Have any of your eight systems been lacking? Could their lack be caused by your slack? This blog post is just a little introduction to a new blog series I’m going to be doing on the idea of “Where There’s Slack There’s Lack.” Starting tomorrow and continuing every Wednesday for the next eight weeks, I will look at one of the eight systems and challenge you to make sure you aren’t slacking off in its implementation. We’re going to figure out together where you are seeing lack and what you can do about it.

I fully expect that these next eight weeks will take your church systems to the next level. Are you ready? Make sure you stay on track with us. Don’t get slack… You know where that leads…
