    Thanks Pastor. Rick. That is excellent line up of Character for any leader to last. What i may suggest besides the above is deep passion in whatever we do. That is like a magnet. we will stick on to it and it will stick on to us. It will bond us together. Thanks once again for those wonderful words.

    Great post Pastor Warren. We are seeing to much leaders without these characteristics running ramped.

    This is an amazing insightful eye-opening piece for church leaders not only in the states but across the globe. I am truly blessed pastor Rick.

  7. Thanks Pastor Rick! We are in the midst of “Transformed” right now. I needed to here these words of wisdom. Some I do, some I need to do better. We have 100 plus in small groups including a CR Group at present. Can’t tell you how much I’ve been blessed by it and how many folks have shared the same. Been using the Transformed Logo as my Facebook Profile Photo for the 50 Days. Has given me a lot of opportunities to tell about the campaign. Thanks again and God Bless!!!

  8. Great reminders Rick. Prayer is one many church leaders including myself can easily stall on. No one wants to follow a leader who is in panic mode! I needed this reminder and I appreciate your words of encouragement.

  9. I love it! Thanks Pastor Rick. These are really great reminders for me and God really spoke to me through the first point especially as God is leading my family to commit the rest of our lives to full-time discipleship training and multiplication through the planting of new missional communities throughout the states. My pastor just shared 4 things with me this week that seem to line up with these four things too. 1. Pray consistently 2. Lead with integrity 3. Love the people 4. Preach the Word!

  10. Great insights here. The only thing I would add is that courage is not just moving forward in spite of fear. There is a moral component to courage: you have to be doing the right thing. So really, it’s moving forward in the right direction in spite of fear.

    The wisdom God gives to you is powerful pastor! I thank God from the bottom of my heart for your life and your testimony. You have been such a great blessing for me, for my family and for my minister.
