John Kotter’s book, Leading Change, describes eight steps to ultimately anchor change within organizational culture.
The first step is to “establish a sense of urgency.” Without it, the possibility of change diminishes.
Often times, awareness of a problem or crises does not go unnoticed, but an overwhelming problem of complacency prevents action producing correction.
The church faces a leadership crisis. We find that some deny the reality of the situation, while others tend to ignore it altogether.
Who will lead from the next generation? What plans are in place to train future leaders for the church?
Unless we realize the urgency of the situation, nothing changes and the result will leave the church without leaders.
