It's so true the leaders in ministry forget the main reason they got into ministry...people. Often the focus is on the programs rather than the people. It's all about relationships. Thank you!
I work in full-time ministry - your article was a great reminder of why we do what we do. Thank you.
Loved the concern for the individual! I'm a pastor's wife and that's what it is all about!
Learning to delegate, to get rid of the excess is one of the hardest parts of leadership, whether church or corporate bound. Great insight here and entertainly written.

Wow Bob! This was one of those Challenge entries that sort of slipped into the background because it didn't place in the challenge. But honestly, this was such wisdom and what a word in season for so many people in ministry today. Well done Bob! With love, Deb

I run a couple prayer ministries. I totally agree! The best way I find to get people to come is to invite one on one. Get to know the person. It's easier to get people involved if they have a connection, a trust with the leader. The trouble is getting to know so many people. The hard part is finding someone that YOU have a trust in to go and recruit or invite more people.
Good leadership truly programmes one for success. Your article was clear and definitely made its point.
