What’s Next?

Leaders are life-long learners and one of the core questions of a learner is “What’s next?”  A learner is always looking beyond the immediate to see what might be on the horizon.  Dave Travis, the CEO of Leadership Network, is one of the best observers of the American church and culture and has produced a brief (64 pages) but packed series of observations on what might be next for churches.  What’s Next: A Look Over the Hill for Innovative Churches and Leaders is worth every penny of the print ($9.99) or digital ($6.99) price.

Dave’s 20 observations are grouped into four categories:

More Of…megachurches, multisite churches and campuses, internet campuses, closed big boxes and second and third tier cities

Athenticators…community serving, globally connected, church starting and planting, racial and ethnic diversity, and transparency

The Obvious…web enabled and the app world, social media,  interns and residents, outsourcing, discipleship in generosity and capital campaigns without the building

Speculations…the retro or vintage wave, bonds and other finance vehicles, LLC special purpose companies for asset holding, and measuring impact

What’s Next would be a great resource piece for a pastor to discuss with their staff and church leadership.
