Questions to break open stuckness or tension

Most search teams get stuck at one point or another. These questions are designed to help the team move ahead in those instances.

  • What can we celebrate?
  • What assumptions are we making, and how are they holding us back?
  • What realities do we need to acknowledge?
  • What is the reason we are spending time on this line of discussion?
  • What is distracting us from our work, and how do we get back on track?
  • What are we not talking about that we really must talk about?
  • What would it take for us to get on the same page?
  • What is one question that might move us forward in this process?
  • What is going on inside of me? What is going on within our search team and/or congregation?
  • What is God prompting in me/us?
