So tomorrow Nathan is preaching. Sarah D. is leading worship. Matt is playing acoustic. I get to play backup acoustic. I might even take a service off. I remember when I couldn’t miss a second of a service. I believe that the truest test of leadership occurs when your not leading. I’m finding too many churches where talented, ordained leaders are being ignored because current leadership is scared they are more talented.
So pour into them and watch God’s blessing come back to minister to your churches in ways you have never imagined. It’s a hard place to get to, but once you get there you will try harder than ever to work yourself out of a job. But a cool things happens. You get better too. I love to watch lead worshippers grow.
And they can’t do it while you are behind the mic.
