Pastoral priorities

with 2 comments

Many pressures and demands pull on the pastor’s time. A full-time capacity does not allow enough time to address them all, though I wish it did. Be wise and diligent with whatever time you are given, and delegate to other capable servants in the church so you are able to focus on that which God calls us to whether bi-vocational or full-time.

Brian Croft offers some counsel on how a full-time pastor should prioritize his time. Easier said than done, and rarely done well without the conscious and deliberate involvement and support of the whole church. (“Necessary administration” is a category that can swallow days of a week.)
