5 Minute Mentoring: Getting Permission To Make Changes

I remember when the professor stood in front of our class, and passed out copies of the 5 year vision plan of a young, visionary pastor he had known.  It was detailed, multiple pages… and quite ambitious.

Then the prof read the resignation letter of the chairman of the church board.  And another board member.

And then, he read the resignation letter of that young, visionary pastor.

None of you want to be that person… big dreams, no ability to get people to follow.

So how can we build that ability?  Demonstrating character & competence in our decisions over time.  That’s what today’s 5 minute mentoring video is about, inspired by a concept in a John Maxwell book.

Check out the video below:

A Word from Our Sponsor:

SermonSubscribe - Providing Quality Preaching Through Video for churches who have lost their pastor

This video series is brought to you by SermonSubscribe, providing quality preaching by video.

Are you burned out as a pastor? Need someone to help lift the preaching load for a time? Do you need a sabbatical, but not sure how you will fill the pulpit?

Are you on a pastoral search committee, but you’re struggling to find a good candidate, and make sure someone is able to preach every weekend? Did your pastor retire, and you’re looking for a new one… but you have to bridge the gap until you can hire a new pastor?

You need to check out SermonSubscribe ( Each week, I preach live in Oklahoma City, edit the High-definition video, and send it to churches across the United States. By the middle of the week, those churches have a quality Biblical sermon to download, handouts to print out & copy… and all of this for far less than it costs to bring in a special speaker or interim pastor.
