Mentoring for Mission
As a pastor of a small church, I feel pulled in a million directions. I have to disciple new believers, counsel couples, steward resources, build partnerships, prepare sermons, invest in families and do evangelism. If you’re a pastor, you can probably think of some things I left off the list. We all feel the pressure to excel at “just one more thing,” and we usually wonder if we have what it takes. And so, when someone says the church needs to focus on a new topic, like missions, we sigh (at least internally), because of the new demands upon our time.
