We've all heard it before, said one way or another, but it's always worth considering again: you have to lead yourself before you can lead your church. We wish it wasn't true. We wish that we could just walk into the office or the sanctuary and be ON at the drop of a hat--but reality doesn't work like that. If you're not emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually growing and thriving, your effectiveness as a leader will always be limited.
On today's episode Jonny hangs out with friend-of-the-show Scott Dalen to talk about what self-leadership looks like and why it's important for your small church. Scott and Jonny pull on some themes from other recent episodes as they dive into the importance of continuing to grow and be self-aware in our ministry lives.
If you enjoy today's episode, check out episode 172 and episode 188 which BOTH feature our buddy Scott and where you can find a whole bunch more encouragement to get you through the small church pastor life.
