Faith For the Future of Your Church

As pastors, we spend a lot of time thinking about and planning for the future. Vision has become a central element of pastoral work. But Jim offers some warnings about the importance of shaping vision with people and why believing for a future is sometimes more important than envisioning it.

Jim explains that servant leadership has to do with seeing the potential of your church and the people in it and serving that potential. But that takes a growing and faith-filled inner life to hold onto that belief for the future.
