Leadership & Management Reducing-Span-of-Care

As I sat across from this senior leader at his desk, I knew he was overwhelmed because I saw his organizational chart before I walked into his office. Every leader of every ministry in the church reported directly to him, which is not an uncommon structure for small and mid-sized churches. That can work for a season.

I need to be reminded of who I am in Christ. That’s my identity. It’s not what the world says about me. It’s not what Facebook or Twitter say about me. It’s not even what I say about me.
