Episode 189 - Transitioning, Leadership, Millennials, and Transparency - Jeff's Talk With A Ministry President!
Good morning, pastor!
When I (Jonny) first started ministry at our church, I figured I could do everything myself. Sure, I would use volunteers in the ministries I was overseeing, but the leadership was all going to run through me. After all, I always know the best way, right?
The reality was, many of my volunteers were naturally stepping into leadership roles, but without any input or leadership from me, things were becoming a mess. I figured that as the "pastor" I always had to be the "leader," but pretty soon I figured out that if our ministries were going to succeed, I needed to develop leaders at every level.
Today on EPISODE 189, Jeff talks to the President of Elim Fellowship, Chris Ball. Chris has been developing leaders for decades and provides tons of practical and powerful content on how you can develop leaders in your church and ministry. Whether you're a young pastor, a pastor in transition, or someone who has been at their church for years, you will be challenged and encouraged by Chris' story and insights.
If something Chris says about ministry transitions caught your attention, check out episode 136 with Dave Ronan. Or, if you're a young pastor just getting started, our conversation with Dan Reiland is a perfect episode for you. And if that's STILL not enough, check out theFour Common Leadership Traps pastors can very easily fall into.
Finally, don't forget about the upcoming Small Church Big Deal Conference on October 1st in Fenton Michigan! Jeff and I and Karl Vaters will all be presenting on Saturday and on Friday night Jeff and I will be hosting a meet and greet and talking with small church pastors. Chris Vitarelli is hosting the conference and it's going to be an awesome time for small church pastors to be encouraged and equipped--so register TODAY!
