If you are successful as a Church Revitalizer, you will win false friends and true enemies. Strive for success no matter. The service you render today will be forgotten tomorrow. Serve people anyway.
A Church Revitalizer’s honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. Revitalization is hard work and those who soft peddle the process loose in the end.
Even your biggest critic in the church has more at stake of you being successful in the efforts of revitalization. The smallest men with the smallest ideas can shoot down the biggest men with the biggest ideas. Dream big, be bold, and think big anyway.
People pretend to love the “little” people, but sell their souls to the “big” people. As a Church Revitalizer, fight for the “little” people anyway.
In Revitalizing of a church its people really need help, but may attack you if you do help them. As a Church Revitalizer help people anyway. Give the church the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth. Give the church the best you have anyway. People will let you done, but Jesus will never let you down.
The nose of a bulldog is slanted backwards so he can continue to breathe without letting go!
