The Pastors Guide To DIY
Do It Yourself Ministry
Yesterday I shared how I intentionally limit my activity as a pastor.
And I 100% believe in the principle I shared...
But here's the counterpoint.
There are certain things I purposely stay involved in.
Like 1 on 1 discipleship.
I try to always have at least 1 or 2 men that I personally disciple.
As a pastor it's more efficient for me to do bigger meetings, groups, etc...
But I want to stay connected to what I train and challenge our church to do!
So at least once a week I have a 1 on 1 discipleship session.
Right now I meet with a young guy from our church who has questions about faith and following Jesus.
It's not efficient...
But it's effective!
He's growing and changing week by week.
And I regularly have lunch with another guy.
We talk about faith, marriage, and business.
Usually a 2 hour lunch.
Thing is, being a kingdom leader isn't all about efficiency.
It's about making disciples.
And according to what God's called you to you'l need to apply leadership principles of efficiency, organization, and delegation...
But you'll also need to stay connected to the "boots on the ground" work of discipleship.
You can't lead what you don't practice.
Hope this helps.
