Changing Your Church Wisely

Everyone knows that change is “make or break” for leadership.

The test of leadership isn’t how many people voted for you, or how many will cry at your funeral… it’s whether or not you can lead people to change.

John Maxwell says,

‘He that thinketh he leadeth and hath no one following him is only taking a walk.’ – John Maxwell

But which changes? Too often, as leaders, since we “own” the change (i.e. we came up with the idea), we fail to understand the emotional cost of change for those who follow us.

Today’s 5 Minute Mentoring Video helps clarify how choosing changes wisely can boost your trust — or break it.

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.
