Serving as senior pastor, staff pastor or associate minister has changed from tarrying in the tower, exclusively riding in the first chariot to driving the car from a distance to lifestyle leadership, managing from the middle and smelling like the sheep. While becoming too common with the congregation you serve is dangerous, leading with words and no walk is equally dangerous. Learn how to lead relationally by connecting as Jesus did with every part and portion of the people you serve. Pastor Kenneth C.
