    I’m very blessed to stumble on this untimely ministerial guides. This direction is what I have seeking and searching for as a minister.
    It’s really opened my understanding deeply to reconsider my approach for the vision l have for the future. If you have books on this topics l will like to purchase.
    Thank you pastor Rick…….

    Our challenge is what to do when the original leader steps down from leading that ministry? In our case, it’s Children’s Ministry. We didn’t start the Children’s Ministry without a minister, but we have to keep it going without one if that leader did not prepare another leader. Otherwise, we just stop Children’s Ministry? I’m trying to figure out which is wiser – stop children’s ministry or try to keep it going with someone who is not the right person.

    • Grace

      Jeff, that’s my question, too. Although, on more than one occasion, I’ve either seen interim leaders step up for a short season, or I’ve seen the leadership cast on someone who really didn’t want it, but who felt powerless to decline (mostly on staff members).

      That’s what I’ve seen in the world, but who can we turn to in the Bible? Can you think of any stories and people from the Bible whose circumstances mirrored our experience? No one comes to mind, although there must at least one experience we can turn to as an example.

    Thanks Rick this is absolutely accurate in my experience. I learned this lesson the hard way a number of years ago.
