Recently Pastor Furtick was interviewed about some of Elevation’s foundational concepts. We thought you’d enjoy reading it as well, so we’ll be posting the questions and answers here on the blog.
What has been your strategy in recruiting key leaders and building a strong team?
The initial 7 families that sold their homes, quit their jobs and stepped out on faith to start this church established a DNA of sacrifice that has been foundational to the team God has built at Elevation. When church planters show up to observe our team, there are certain things that simply can not be taught and frankly can not be accounted for on a spread sheet or in a list of principles. The willingness of those early families to risk it all to see a move of God is such a deep part of who we are as a church and that spirit of faith has reproduced itself in the hearts of every staff member and every volunteer creating what I believe to be the most phenomenal volunteer staff on planet earth.
