How did this make an impact?

  1. Being we are all called to preach the Good News, this is Good information for all those coming out of babe-hood to eat the meat and share the meat of the LORD’s messages.

    Being a first time mother, I have my share of distractions. But, I’m also a seasoned Christian and always standing on the Rock of my Salvation with a repentant heart. Learn to pray continuously… practice, practice, practice until you accumulate a full prayer life. Therein your cup may remain full.

    So true. Wonderful advice. I see those things that you describe right in my own church. And then we wonder why the church is not growing at all.

    Thanks for the insight to help me grow

  8. Thanks for sharing this profound ministry and management truth,
    Overcoming these traps and practicing the solutions will keep my church healthy and focused on God and the purpose of his calling us into his vineyard .
    My heart is open to new ideas, ways of service and humble. Keep inspiring us to reach higher for God.

  9. Thanks. I have understood that for you to become a good and strong leader in ministry or church, you must focus your eyes and your heart on God. Leave all traps of the devil laying around you. You must know to delegate work to others and not do the work which is to be done by 10 men. Thanks, continue to send more. I am ready to read!

  10. Thanks, Rick. The road can become cumbersome for sure, but I’m trying to be more objective in my ministry. Satan has noticed that and has began attacking. If I continued to base my ministry on my feelings I would fail for sure…just as I’ve done in times past. Thanks for the advice. Solid tips. And, thanks for helping other ministers stay focused on the mission at hand.

    Thank you for such wonderful words of common hidden mistakes that destroy the good work started by God and the Holy Spirit, without realizing the consequences.

  12. I am not a pastor, but a teacher who wants to be used of God. I have been attending the same church for 7 years. I submitted myself to the pastor hoping to be used.The church was very small, only 15 people. In these 7 years the church has only grown to 25. There is no outreach except special speakers coming in. A lady is the pastor and she demands respect like a parent. There is no advisory board, just her and her husband. the husband is her servant not a partner or minister himself. No one is getting saved, or filled with the Holy Spirit, or sent out. The pastor is not open to constructive criticism from the regular attenders. Three leaders were asked to leave because they did not agree with the pastor. Two potential leaders just left because they have not been used in over 5 years.
    any advice. Please help.

    • Some pastors are called and some just go. Sounds like you got caught up in the goer. Very important question you must ask yourself, “Am I growing spiritually?”
