During the first video in this series, we discuss the importance of preparing for change. We explained that change can be a fearful endeavor for the church leader and the attender. This is why we have devoted this video specifically to the fear of change. As you already know, change is inevitable, but fear is not. We want to help you propel your church forward with effective change and avoid the fear factor surrounding it. In order to do this, we will answer the question of why people in the church fear change.
The first step in overcoming the fear of change is to understand where it comes from. Understanding why people in the church fear change is imperative as a church leader. Why does the word change seem to inherently spark fear into people? What is it about change that appears so intimidating. The truth is, there is a mental shift that occurs in the minds of the people in your church when they hear the word change. We want to unpack that mental shift and teach you how to switch the outlook from fear, to excitement.
Once you understand where the fear of change is coming from, the next step is to attack the fear. When you can appreciate why people are afraid of change within your church, you can effectively ease that fear. What role do you play in easing the fear of change in your church? What methods can you use to alleviate the fear of change in your setting? Our goal is to help you as you attempt to answer these important questions.
