My time in seminary was perhaps one of my sweetest moments yet a hardest time of my life. But seminary didn’t teach me everything. It certainly didn’t fully prepare me for ministry.
The reality is this; The majority of people who start in ministry don’t finish in ministry. Too often, ministry leaders are simply on autopilot. If you’re on a leadership position and your goal is to just to survive you’re facing a burn out. The goal of leadership is not to survive. The goal of leadership is to help you thrive.
If we don’t have a clear vision that drives us, chances are a maintenance mode rather than multiplication mode. True success in our lives as leader is growing those who are following us.
