How do you organize a City Gospel Movement?

Without some structure and vision, it can be nearly impossible to see momentum build in your city’s movement. And while organizational charts and bylaws are helpful, at the end of the day, transformation is a work of the Holy Spirit.

We often talk with CGM leaders about organizational structure. This topic involves a plethora of questions like:

  • What is your leadership structure?
  • Are you a 501(c)(3)? If so, why did you decide this model?
  • Who is on your board? And, why?
  • Are your mission and vision clear? Are they written down?
  • In what initiatives are you seeing the most momentum?

When we were on the phone earlier this year with the dynamic COS I Love You team from Colorado Springs we asked them similar questions.

They quickly responded with another question: “Can we send you our COS I Love You Leadership Handbook?”

We said, “You might have just made our day.”

Each city is different which means there are as many movement models as there are cities. We have postured ourselves as learners of movement models. Why? Because we have seen how constructive it can be to learn what is working in other cities and be challenged to ask different questions about the effectiveness of the model in our own city.
