After 30 years of leadership in one Church, I’ve learned a few important lessons.
It’s been my privilege to help a Church grow from 10 to about 600 hundred people. We’ve grown from one small property with one little building to two properties with many buildings.
In our first year, we had a budget of 12 thousand dollars. We now manage an annual budget of 800 thousand dollars. More importantly, I’ve had the privilege to develop and work with many pastoral staff for over the years.
The blessings during these years have been amazing and the trials have been daunting.
I’ve always felt that the size of the calling was larger than the man responding to it. The weight of Paul’s question is always felt: “Who is equal to such a task?” (II Corinthians 2:16). God has been faithful. When needed most, He leads us beside still waters.
