From the time I was a teen, I knew I was destined to work at a church. The problem was, I didn’t see any roles that fit me. I didn’t have a drive to preach, so I didn’t want to be a senior pastor. I didn’t like teens even when I was one, and so figured I shouldn’t be a youth pastor. And my musical ability wasn’t awesome, which meant being a worship leader wasn’t in my future.

4 Ways For Busy Church Leaders To Keep Their Focus On God


In the busyness of life and ministry, spending intentional time with God can sometimes lose its priority in our lives. Over the past 23 years of ministry, God has allowed me to serve as a Senior Pastor, Executive Pastor, Family Pastor, and Small Groups Pastor. In all those roles, one of the biggest obstacles I’ve encountered is making room for God in my daily schedule. For me, prayer and the spiritual disciplines have seemed to (not intentionally) slowly shift to the back seat of my priorities.
