Church Of God In Christ, Launched New Culture Model To Support Change For The 21st Century.
Reader God has a terrible time convincing even his true followers that change is an essential and never-ending need in the church. What is wrong with leaders who call for change? Nothing at all! With that being said, COGIC Presiding Bishop and CEO, Charles E. Blake, has launched a new idea for the upcoming years. According to Presiding Bishop and CEO Blake, as we continue to advance into this 21st century, we do so with the understanding that change is inevitable. Change is an essential component when conducting business, and we must learn to embrace it. Embracing change will require a paradigm shift for us individually as well as collectively. While holding fast to our faith, our thoughts and behaviors must evolve to address the needs of our church and the communities in which they are located. We must also change to accommodate new, emerging laws.
These changes will require a culture that is robust enough to facilitate making necessary adjustments, while allowing us to move on to the next level. Such a culture will help us better understand one another, work synergistically, and produce the greatest results. This culture will create the framework in which we will come to realize that while we are unique, we can work in unity, focus on common goals, and be innovative. As we work together, whether in our secular environment or our church environment, we must be intentional, focusing on building a culture that supports our desire to do greater works. Having a strategy without the right culture is a failure brewing. But having a great strategy and a great culture are the ingredients for a successful organization.
