Entrepreneurial Aptitude and the Capacity to Implement Vision

by Kade Wilcox, a pastor at Redeemer Church in Lubbock, Texas and CEO of Primitive Social

Over the last three years as our church has planted several other churches, I have realized the tremendous similarities in planting a church and starting a small business. Three years ago, my wife and I started our own business that has rapidly grown and evolved — much like a church plant often takes off very quickly. As I have continued to help plant more and more churches while growing our small business, the overlap of lessons and experiences learned in each continues to grow.

One of the things that makes church planting unique is the necessity for the church planter to be a well-rounded leader. Oftentimes I will run into young leaders who feel like the one thing needed to qualify them as a church planter is that they “feel” called to do it.  A call by God to plant a church is certainly important. However, given the nature of church planting, I think it’s critical to evaluate the leadership capacity of the church planter as well.

"Having an 'idea' and a feeling of calling for a church plant is significantly different than having a vision for a church and the leadership capacity to implement that vision."

Much like in starting a small business, a church planter should be able to function as a starter – or in other words, as an entrepreneur. Having an “idea” and a feeling of calling for a church plant is significantly different than having a vision for a church and the leadership capacity to implement that vision.

During our session together we will explore a number of entrepreneurial aptitudes that I believe will benefit and serve a church planter as he explores whether or not he has the chops to plant a church.

Kade will be leading one of the breakout sessions in the Entrepreneurial Aptitude track at the upcoming Acts 29 Conference | North America, which will be held in Dallas, TX on November 6-8, 2014.
