WHY DO WE EXIST?
The answer to this question gets to our core purpose, something that is completely idealistic, something grand and aspirational to help us stay true to the reason why.
We exist to help people take their next steps in their relationship with God.
The WHY is our purpose. It is the centre of everything we do. The centre of the wheel.
Before you can figure out WHAT you’re going to do and HOW you’re going to do it, you need to know WHY you’re doing it.
When we get burned out, we’ve forgotten the WHY. When you feel like you’re failing at something, you’ve forgotten WHY you wanted to do it in the first place. When you want to give up on ministry, you need to remind yourself of the WHY.
When you start a program or event you need to put it through the filter of our WHY, to help people take their next steps in their relationship with God. That is our WHY.
‘He who has a WHY can endure any HOW.’
Knowing your why is an important first step in figuring out how to achieve the goals that excite you and create a life you enjoy living (versus merely surviving!).
Only when you know your ‘why’ will you find the courage to take the risks needed to get ahead, stay motivated when the chips are down, and move your life / church / business onto an entirely new, more challenging, and more rewarding path.
When you are powered by a clear purpose, there is little you cannot do.
