DS role in revitalization

"The shift for the superintendency (General and District) is less and less about being a bureaucrat and administrative manager and more and more about coaching, missional strategizing, and relating to people and churches." I appreciate this sentence the most because a DS is addressing the challenges of being a DS in our postmodern world. Being a lover of charts and graphs, I am curious how the author would expand his chart philosophy to the clergy role AND the DS and CABINET/BISHOP role. Just encouraging the big picture and what is good for the geese (church) and good for the goose (clergy/DS/cabinet/Bishop)

Bishop Laurie Haller delivers the Episcopal Address at the 2017 session of the Iowa Annual Conference.“Are you modeling the love of Christ to everyone who walks through the doors of your churches? What are you doing outside your buildings for the people most in need in your communities, the state of Iowa, and this world? Are all of your many activities making a difference? Where’s your runway?”

– Bishop Laurie Haller in her first episcopal address to the Iowa Annual Conference.
