Jesus leaders - what pastors were meant to be
Jim Martin, pastor of Crestview Church of Christ in Waco, Texas:
Many people are cynical about the church. That’s not news. There are many reasons for this cynicism. Some are cynical because of a basic mistrust of the people leading these churches. Some feel burned after learning a leader was living an immoral lifestyle. Others have been burned by placing their confidence in some church leader only to be severely disappointed due to displays of anger, ego, manipulation, etc. In contrast to these experiences, many people today would find genuine Jesus leaders to be quite refreshing.
- We are at our best when we practice what we preach.
- We are at our best when Jesus – rather than our own ego – is front and center.
