Show Notes

Show Notes:

This week, we’ll continue our chat with Mark MacDonald.

We’re talking more about what should be the thread that connects every ministry in your church. We’ll also talk through the words BE KNOWN FOR SOMETHING and what each of them mean, the benefits of being known for something and more.

Enjoy part two of our exclusive interview.

In this episode, we cover…

What should be in my “thread”?

  • Needs to be Simple.
  • Needs to be somewhat “open” in thought.
  • Needs to be Emotionally Charged
  • Needs to be Benefit Driven
  • Needs to feel like your congregation.
  • Needs to be Unique.


  • BE: who and what you are
  • KNOWN: a solution to a pain
  • FOR: what are you known for
  • SOMETHING: one compelling thing

Your Thread and what it should look like for your church.

  • Know who will decide.
  • Get as much input as possible.
  • Obtain Buy-In.
  • Evaluate Regularly.
