Part of the Big Idea planning process at Community Christian Church and our NewThing Network is to plan out our our Big Ideas one year in advance. In chapter 12 of The Big Idea we explain “How To Create Your Own Big Idea Plan”. If you have read our book you know what I’m talking about. (If you haven’t read it, you can order it by clicking HERE.) We will be having our NewThing Gathering in a few weeks where we will bring in affiliate churches from 10 different states and we will brainstorm and create our Big Idea plan for the coming year.
This is where I would love to have the help of everyone who reads this blog. IF YOU READ THIS BLOG LEAVE ME COMMENT AND TELL ME YOUR BEST BIG IDEAS, I can’t get too many comments and I can’t get too much detail. Feel free to leave as much or as little as you like; just leave me a comment. OK? Maybe we will write a follow-up book on The Big Idea and we will have to credit you for coming up with our very best Big Idea ever! Now here is the hook – if you leave me a comment with your best Big Idea I will make sure that you get the complete list of Big Ideas that are suggested here. Deal? And I will up the ante – if we use your Big Idea titles in the coming year I will send you a $25 Starbucks gift card. Feel motivated? OK, to get you started thinking of Big Ideas, here are some questions to ponder:
- What are some of the best Big Ideas that your church has ever done?
- What is the best Big Idea you have stolen from another church or should’ve stolen?
- What Big Idea would you like to experience?
- What are some Big Ideas from music, movies or literature that need to be addressed?
- What Big Idea should be done, but has never been done?
- Maybe you are thinking of a series of Big Ideas that are topical?
- Maybe you are thinking of a series of Big Ideas that are expository?
- Got a Big Idea title without much content? Tell me about it!
- Got the content of a Big Idea with no clue of a title? I want to hear it.
OK, leave me a comment telling me your Big Idea and for those that play – I will send you the complete list!
