Every ministry has blind spots. Being an insider, you can't see them. That's why they are called blind spots.
A blind spot may be something that is missing.
A blind spot may be something that's not working anymore, but you can't see it because that's just what you've always done.
A blind spot may be something that needs to be added. A tweak or adjustment that can really make a big difference in your effectiveness.
A blind spot may be facilities that need to be updated or adjusted for optimum usage.
The thing is this. You can't fix something you can't see.
One of the best things you can do for your ministry is to bring in outside eyes. Outside eyes can help you find your blind spots. Why? Because you have unfamiliarity working for you. You get a fresh perspective. You get new insight.
Do you resonate with this? I sure do. Often when someone came to visit my ministry, I would ask them to be brutally honest with me and tell me what they saw - weaknesses, strengths, flaws, etc. Once I received the feedback, I was able to talk through them and make adjustments that would benefit us.
As you draw closer to a new ministry year, consider having someone help you find and fix your ministry blind spots.
