2019 Workshop

Pastors: Leading from the Second Chair


Serving as a pastoral assistant to the Lead/Senior Pastor is a significant privilege and calling, yet not for the feint of heart. For some, it has stirred up feelings of competition or led to discouragement. Thankfully, it can be done with great joy and lead to a fruitful, vibrant ministry life! We are most fulfilled when we can serve with joy, confidence, honesty and courage ... using our unique giftedness while sitting in the 2nd Chair.
