Monday Proflections July 7, 2008

I’m looking forward to the upcoming week. Here’s what’s happening with me and Church Leader Insights plus a free resource that may be of interest to you:

Monday – I’ll be in the office all day for the usual round of meetings. One of the highlights for me is the Sunday debrief. Here’s a free podcast that Jason and I did on how to conduct a Worship Debrief.

Tuesday – Watch your email for the new Church Leader Insights newsletter – should arrive in your in box between 10am and 11am. I share 7 great articles on evangelism and church leadership plus my latest book recommendations. If you aren’t getting the newsletter, sign-up today right here.

Wednesday – This is my ‘normal’ day off. I’m highly committed to working hard six days a week and taking one full day as a Sabbath. Not sure all that I will do but I know it will include major time with God, Kelley and Alexander. Is your day off scheduled yet?

Thursday – I’ll be interviewing a potential multi-site pastor today. I’m spending more and more of my time these days recruiting A-players to join our team. How about you? Are you interested in being a multi-site pastor with us?

Friday – Lots of little things today, including the final message run thru for Sunday and general paperwork (I always put paperwork at my least productive times). Tonight I have a date night with Kelley. Is your date night scheduled yet?

In addition, watch the blog this week for some thoughts on Mid-year Giving Letters, My IRS audit and a secret I just discovered about Craig Croeschel.

It’s going to be a great week – aren’t you glad we get to do what we do?
