Leaders & Races



That is the percentage of church leaders that finish the race, and finish it well.

Whatever weight you ascribe to statistics, the reality of ministry is that only a very small minority finish the race well. Or finish the race at all.

We are exhorted time and time again in the Bible to run the race, fix our eyes on Jesus and fight the good fight.

When I’m a Church leader one day, I want to be one that finishes the race, and finishes it well. The key to doing this is to look to Jesus, and to take on board EVERYTHING he says, and finally, to act on it.
