The statistics vary- some painting a picture of the church disappearing in the next generation, and others showing increasing numbers of conversions. But most church leaders would agree that their churches are not as effective as they could be in helping their communities and congregations experience spiritual transformation.
As Bishop TD Jakes said at the Summit, ‘I need a me.’ It’s not uncommon for Church leaders to unintentionally neglect the health of their own souls in their attempts to care for the souls of others -- but a leader's own soul health has a significant impact on the spiritual transformation of those they lead.
What happened the past days has us thinking. Lots. What if there was a new expression of the WCA’s commitment to inspire, challenge, and equip church leaders year-round? What if you took your Summit learning deeper and spent time building into your own soul?
Even if it’s not an 8-week course, what are the things that you’re doing to ensure you don’t loose your leadership momentum from the Summit? How are you taking time to care for your soul and digest what you heard?
