Hey there Bootcampers! We’re back from our Holiday break, we’re jumping right in and getting down to business and discussing the important awareness of how you live your life as a leader. Our good friends at First Coast Churches hosted an annual meeting where Lance Witt presented some great info on how Pastors can move beyond the grind.
Every leader lives on two stages:
- The front stage-everyone sees
- The backstage-clutter, curtains, chaos not many ever see this
The challenge many Pastors face is staying connected to and loving Jesus, the Shepherd, more than the sheep business. How do you do that? Witt, provides some helpful framework for us from Psalm 23
- Create space and time for unhurried time with God
- Pay attention to what you are paying attention to
- Let rest – restore you
- Grab your calendar by the throat-don’t let life or ministry plan you-proactively plan with the Lord’s guidance.
- Engage good self-care rather than self-medication
- Practice a Sabbath (you need a day off)
- Let your time with God give embolden you with courage
- Receive the voice of God’s blessing
