collaboration-not-compromise-control-agile-blog-solutionsiqBy Tara Alexander

Collaboration is a powerful tool in the hands of people who understand that their gifts and talents can be combined for a greater good. When we come together as Christians we are not losing a piece of ourselves but we are gaining more of Him! People sharpen us to become more like Jesus. Your strength combined with mine may be just what the community needs. Collaboration often precedes powerful work in any community. We can join forces to create a space where lives are changed, communities are healed, people are helped and God’s purposes are truly fulfilled.

Here are things to ask yourself as you contemplate collaboration:
  1. What specifically are we aiming to do?
  2. Does the collaboration/project/idea reflect my spiritual beliefs?
  3. Am I the person that God called to lead this venture or am I the person who will support it being done?
  4. What gifts do I have that can support the project/idea?
  5. What gifts am I “willing” to share?
  6. What am I “not willing” to share? Why?
  7. How much time can I invest in this collaboration?
  8. What am I expecting as a return on my investment of time?
  9. Do I want to be paid for my skills? If so, how much, why & when?
  10. Am I willing to pray continually for the success of this collaboration?
  11. Are my motives to see its success even without me involved?
  12. Can I serve even if I am not chosen to lead?
  13. Do I have the maturity to stay as we work out the kinks of working together?
  14. Do I have the interpersonal skills to work as a team member?
  15. Do I need training in order to work more effectively with others?
  16. Who will take responsibility for this work if it is not what we expected?
  17. Who do I want to get the credit for this work if it is successful?

Try This: Take 31 Minutes for 31 Days to do something that can possibly benefit you for a lifetime!!

Join us from July 1st-31st as we take time to focus on our vision, discipline our lives, develop new habits and renew our minds! There is so much distraction in this world that we feel the need to get back on track by spending quality time obeying what God has for each of us to do. Pray about what you need to do this month to help you get your focus or maintain your focus.

We’re challenging our church family and our friends to be a part of this time of renewal with us. Some are fasting from certain foods, some are abstaining from certain music, others are focusing on exercising just 31 minutes a day, some of us are even spending less time on other things to get into the word. This is going to be exciting!! Just pray about what you can do to make a change for the better and get you back on track to success!!
