The call to ministry is the call to prepare — and preparation is an ongoing process. You will never learn all there is to be learned about any subject; you’ll never reach the pinnacle point in any area. Part of being an effective pastor and a more fulfilled person is deciding to be a lifelong learner.
Personal growth always precedes healthy church growth. If the church’s growth begins to outpace the pastor’s personal growth, cracks become evident pretty quickly. Given this reality, creating a personal growth plan is key to fulfilling your calling.

3. God grows you through the internal witness of the Holy Spirit.
Join me next Tuesday and I’ll share the remaining three ways God grows you.
Your partner in ministry,
