One Simple Way to Powerfully Encourage the Heart of Your Pastor

An excerpt from Pastor Paul Chappell's, The Pastor's Perspective:

 

“Pastor, I just want you to know that I’m all in.”

All in! Those words replayed in my mind through the next weeks. And every time I hear them again, they encourage me.

My overwhelming desire and passion is to see people grow in their walk with the Lord and become fruitful in their Christian lives. To this end, I pray, study, and prepare sermons for our church family. To this end, I do my best to provide vigilant spiritual oversight. To this end, I write notes, counsel, and earnestly pray for the members of our church. To this end, I seek God’s direction for our church ministries and His provision for expanding our facilities.

As a pastor, I’m all in.  I couldn’t fill my role any other way.

But what a tremendous encouragement to me to hear someone else voluntarily express whole-hearted involvement and commitment.
