Today's Mental Image:
The Secret Of A Dynamic Church
by Gordon H. Schroeder
from my Mother's scrapbook
How can you make the pastor's ministry more effective?
- Build the pastor's spiritual power by praying for him.
- Build the pastor's reputation by speaking well of him.
- Build the pastor's morale by encouraging him.
- Build the pastor's pulpit power by hearing him.
- Build the pastor's leadership by co-operating with him.
- But the greatest thing you can do for your pastor is to follow the Christ he preaches.
A church is responsible for what she does to her pastor, as is the pastor for what he does for the church. Every great church is a monument to one or more great pastors, and every great pastor is a product of one or more great churches. A dynamic pastor will build his church, and a dynamic churc will build her pastor.
