Ten Things I Wish I Could Say To Every Church Leader

Updated: Jan 31, 2023

I want to encourage you with 10 things I’d say to you if we sat down for coffee together.

1. You can do EXACTLY what God has called you to do!

2. Never, I mean NEVER apologize for big vision!

3. Steps of faith are always scary...if they weren’t scary then you would not need faith!

4. What you are going through will not define you as a leader—but how you go through it


5. You can really get a great sense of what God is up to by looking at the people He has

placed around you. If He is surrounding you with amazing people, it’s because amazing

things are about to happen.

6. Changing someone else’s idea is easy—allowing someone to say that your idea needs to

change is way more challenging but necessary for the long-term growth of the church.

7. Every single decision you make impacts far more people than you could ever imagine.

Your life really is not your own!

8. If you want excellent chemistry on your team, then keep very short accounts and NEVER

allow conflict to go unresolved.

9. Always allow conflict to take place (behind closed doors), and make sure everyone has

said everything they feel like they need to say. People are way more likely to follow a leader

they feel like listens to them.

10. One of the best sources of information/ideas are the people you work with every day.

The reason they don’t share them with you is either because they feel as if they can’t, or they

have never been invited to do so.
