Minister and mentor

leave a comment »

Pastors, we all want to be faithful in the ministry God has given us in the local church. Our great legacy might be seen in the young men we train up and send out. Let’s do the hard work of preparing good, Christ-centered sermons. Let’s do the hard work of biblical counseling. Let’s do the hard work of casting vision, planning, and starting new ministries.

Let us also invest in the young men who will plant new churches, revitalize dead or dying ones, or pastor existing churches and faithfully preach the glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ for many years after we’re dead and gone.

As one who has benefited and continues to benefit from the counsel and care of older, wiser, more experienced pastors, I appreciated Chris Bass’s call to make mentoring future leaders a priority.
