  • Culture Shift in Mexico and Brazil – ICOMB
    they see is needed This coalition is informal but is understood by others as an important force 3 Develop a Change Vision in Mexico the vision was communicated right in the assembly discussion let s step up in faith In Brazil the vision is being developed slowly and organically primarily because it s a culture shift and such a vision is complex with lots of churches at different stages 4 Communicate the vision for Buy in The Brazil situation is more internal to COBIM the elected board In Mexico discussion took place in the Assembly The 2 voices were church planters familiar with stepping toward the edge of faith who also are good communicators 5 Empower broad based action Remove obstacles change systems and structures that undermine the vision and encourage risk taking and non traditional ideas and action This platform was immediate in Mexico because it was in Assembly and together they voted in favor of the faith challenge In Brazil a more grassroots action is taking place churches start Portuguese services church plants of all kinds etc challenging COBIM as central leadership to adjust its focus This phenomenon is not unusual paradigm shifts often come from the field of action not the board room But the board room must be able to listen discern the valuable elements of what s happening and determine the change that s appropriate COBIM is doing this 6 Generate Short Term Wins In Mexico the decision was made Now the churches have a very specific goal to aim at and they will know they won when they hit it In Brazil a possible win will be to see COBIM led and driven more by Brazilian members and character than German The surnames of members might tell the story or the development of church plants in new regions or other They are working on a number of new initiatives and approaches 7 Never Let Up This step in Kotter s agenda acknowledges that change takes time and persistence Initial wins need to be reinforced with new challenges The Guiding Coalition needs to broaden to a larger base Wins must occur frequently to validate the new vision 8 Incorporate Changes into the Culture Persistence in Step 7 leads to actual change in the culture which ensures leadership development and succession into the next generation In both conferences I saw a desire for a new day Kotter has a way to describe the steps to take toward that new day cheering each other on and helping each other over hurdles In Brazil s case it truly is a culture shift from one heart language to another I see God doing his work in these conferences This is one way to describe it Let s see what He will do Brazil Mexico Similar Posts What is God Doing 15 Dec 2012 This week s blog is going to be an article in the Paraguay German Conference periodical US MB Study Conference Day 2 25 Jan 2013 Friday

  • Pathway to Hope – ICOMB
    joyful or happy is often said Well that joy is an expression of hope in God The prayer praise and dancing are both practiced amidst the suffering and endurance and are also the result The hope is in God often because there are no other visible resources to provide hope Then another thought hit me in Uruguay Our US MB conference lives in a country where the pursuit of happiness is constitutionalized as a Right in the Declaration of Independence This unique situation has great power to undermine what God wants to do in his followers in that country It s plain to see how it works When a follower of Jesus begins to suffer the constitutional right comes quickly to mind I have the inalienable Right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness So prayers are offered Lord please take this suffering away And in that land of plenty tremendous resources can mitigate or eliminate suffering quite quickly So we praise God for providing relief and answering prayer But the culture is actually an opponent to discipleship If God has designed the endurance of suffering to build character and hope that is hope in him not so much in available resources then are we not called to embrace it if it s not fixable It s possible to miss God s purposes and higher goals if we insist on avoiding that first step or complaining about it on the pathway to hope My friend Bonface in Malawi frequently says God is in full control He has walked the pathway to hope in God through long experience of want and struggle in that impoverished country I don t instantly know how I should pray for myself or for others when I see suffering But I m trying to let
