A few more thoughts on being an entrepeneur . . .

+Alan commented on my post from the other day about rethinking the whole deal of being a lead pastor, and a one man show, etc. A hearty amen to that. I don’t want to close myself off from the potential benefit of these assessments that will tell me whether or not I have the “right” personality makeup to plant a church successfully, but I have a feeling that the benefits will be of a different nature than the bootcamp folks may intend.

It is almost comical to me that whether or not I’m entrepeneurial should have anything to do with the success of a church plant. If I do plant a church, I really hope it looks a lot more like Ben & Jerry’s than Microsoft. When Ben & Jerry’s first started out, it was within the environment of a dairy co-op in Vermont. I mean, heck – just the name Ben AND Jerry’s shows you that it wasn’t a one man show. And then there’s Microsoft . . . the cult of Bill Gates’ personality. I know I don’t have the personality to do that . . . for which I am eternally grateful.
