7 Good Reasons Pastors Should Say NO

Peter Drucker once said something about like this, “A prerequisite for a career in ministry should be a 6 week intensive course in saying ‘NO.’ Yet no such course exists.”

Can you relate as a pastor?  It’s tough to find the wisdom to know when to say YES and when to say NO.  Often we feel pressure to say yes when:

  1. The person asking is a valued leader in the church.

  2. The person asking is a new attender.

  3. You said YES to something similar in the past.

  4. You feel guilty about not “doing enough.”

  5. You feel that spirituality is mainly related to activity.

Pastors struggle with all these things, pretty much weekly.

Here’s a quick 5 minute video that will help.  It’s entitled 7 Good Reasons Pastors Should Say NO.
