Mark says one of his primary roles as lead pastor at National Community Church is that of Chief Storyteller.
“As the Chief Storyteller, you need to turn past experiences into metaphors for the future. Just as it's God's faithfulness in the past that gives us faith for the future, it is the defining moments in our past that give us vision for the future.”
The power of story applies to all organizations, not just churches. Stories move people to action. They motivate and inspire. Don’t just talk about your organization. Tell the people stories instead.
