There's a leadership theory called The Bus Test.
If the leader were hit by a bus, are there enough leaders and strategists and problem solvers in place so the ministry (or organization) can continue effectively?
It's the idea of building a strong leadership team, recruiting and mobilizing volunteers, so the ministry doesn't become a one-man show.
I am happy to say: The Greenhouse has passed The Bus Test - with flying colors.
I have not been hit by a bus, thankfully, but I have strep throat and an ear infection. Confirmed at urgent care last night. My home has been an infirmary for the last month, so my turn was bound to come. I assure you: I feel like I've been hit by a bus.
A freaking big bus.
The team stepped into action last night, and they whipped together an excellent plan for tonight. I am so thankful, so impressed, and so honored to serve alongside you ladies.
I only wish I could come to see the execution of such a great evening. Alas, I'll be hanging out with an army of antibiotics.
So much love to The Greenhouse tonight!
