Day 97: Personal Growth
One thing I mention often is the need for personal growth. This is true especially for the pastor of a church or any staff that is involved in Sunday morning ministry and not able to be in the church service. I get a kick out those that are children's pastors or nursery workers and so fourth that say "I never get to sit in the adult service." I feel like just saying "you think?" It takes a mature person in Christ to be able to do these kinds of ministry. It is important for lead pastors and those mentioned above to be responsible for self-study whether it is through podcasts of messages, reading, personal prayer time, etc. It becomes VERY evident to a pastor when those not being fed on a Sunday morning due to doing ministry are not doing anything to see personal growth in their own life.
