Leader’s Insight: Pastoral Ambition
All this “success” is working against God’s purposes, and chipping away at our souls.
I want to talk about pastoral ambition. I do so with some apprehension.
A few years ago, our church was “successful” enough for me to be invited to a small, elite group of pastors of large churches who were being mentored by one of the more successful and talented pastors in the country. It was a heady few days for me. I got to mix it up with some of the biggest names and up and coming stars in the large church subculture. I felt very important.
