As churches evaluate their processes and introduce new ways of doing things, the biggest pushback they typically hear is, “that’s not how we’ve always done it.”
The elders don’t want to switch things up. The pastor doesn’t like change. Volunteers are worried new tools will be difficult to learn. Even tools and ideas that will simplify their jobs are shunned.
But we’ve always printed weekly bulletins.
But we’ve always passed the offering plate.
But we’ve always mailed follow-up letters.
