Every church committee has a, “default decision” in mind, when it’s time to make a decision.
- It’s the decision that people expect the committee to make.
Usually, it’s a, “good decision,” in that it aims for the best possible outcome.
- And, it’s usually trying not to break anything – keeping things together and intact.
But, the, “default decision,” is not always the, “right decision.”
- Because what is, “right,” depends on for whom.
And, the, “default decision,” usually has to do with the interests of the church’s members.
- But, really, the, “right decision,” is one that is more about the church’s mission.
We call this the: “Member-centric” vs. “Maker-centric” dynamic.
