All changes perceived as an extension of the culture are likely to be embraced as opposed to those that create more resistance. A leader (a preacher) searching for souls need to understand the cultural ties that may hinder individuals from accepting change. Moreover, a big question asked by people, is whether a change is complex and unmanageable. It is the duty of a leader to sub-divide the task and break it down to be more manageable using various tactics such as prior presentation plans, reviews of the past acceptance of the word by individuals and culture hindrance to the word.

Some may deny; others may question why the change would be necessary for them while other may bargain and weigh out whether the change would be preferable and beneficial to them. Members who perceive change as a credential for life and personal growth will honestly accept and endorse the change. Aggressive strategic plans are set depending on people’s acceptance of the set goals of implementing change. A change is passed to members opted to be found within their virtual residential through organizing crusades, evangelistic campaigns, a door-to-door visitation and Bible conferencing. Communication plans set seek to minimize the uncertainty that may arise when major changes are implemented.

Communication helps members to get deeper understanding of the strategic plan initiative for organizations through leaders. Leaders should try to answer the following questions when setting up strategic plans for change management:

1. Is the change corresponding to the culture? – People accept change with ease when their cultural practices are not undermined. Changes that do not match the expectation of a given group will never be accepted.

2. Is there complexity in employing change to the real life situation? – Leaders should focus more on changes that are manageable and noncomplex in nature. Complex changes would bring fear and pose more threats.

3. Are there related benefits? – People prefer changes that are beneficial to their life.
