God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. 

Psalm 119:33

 

 Christmas 1981

Marriage & Family

Handle with care! - these relationships are made in heaven, but have to be lived out here on earth.

God’s perfect idea has to be lived out in imperfect people in an imperfect world. There lies the challenge as we bump into each other’s imperfections. Lets work it out and walk it out together!

Leadership

Whether you believe it or not, everyone is leading someone. Specifically, you are leading you!

So, where are you taking you? What road are you traveling to develop yourself so that you can effectively lead others to fulfill their God-given purpose? Its been said that leadership is influence and responsibility. Lets be responsible to grow so we can influence others effectively.

Life in the Ministry

Life in the ministry is the highest of honors, yet so many are suffering.

Recent statistics (Pastoral Care, Inc.) show that 80% of ministers feel the ministry has negatively affected their family.

33% say that the ministry has been an outright hazard to their family. 80% of Pastor’s spouses wish their spouse would choose a different profession. Something is wrong somewhere. Lets work together on changing those stats so we can grow, thrive and really enjoy life in the ministry!
