Best Advice I Ever Got

In the summer of 1995, having graduated from seminary, Joleen and I were preparing to move to North East, PA to pastor our first church (as co-pastors). One night we were having dinner at my dad’s house and their pastor was their as well. Before he left that evening, he gave us some great advice that has stuck with me ever since …

Love 'em, lead 'em, and don't take nothin' personally.

It’s simple advice, but sometimes it’s anything but easy, especially the last part. Learning to not take things personally is one of the things that allows leaders to keep moving forward, to stick to God’s mission, at all cost!
