Church Leadership
The Indescribable Joy Of Loving The Church God Called You To Serve
Sometimes, being able to say “I love this church and I want to stay here” is enough to keep you going.
If you are where God called you to be, that should be enough to keep you there.

You don’t have to prove your worth.

You don’t have to justify your calling.

You don’t have to see constant numerical increase.

You don’t have to be someone you’re not.

You have value. To God and his church.

Right here, right now. No matter what the numbers do or don’t look like.

The Joy Of Staying

Go where you’re called.

Love the people you pastor.

Reach out to others with Jesus’ love.

And stay until you’re moved.

They say the joy is in the journey.

Sometimes, the joy is in staying where you’ve been sent.
