Life, Family, Ministry, and Witnessing Are All About Relationship


Many pastors and ministry leaders are much better at imparting information than they are at building relationships. They are comfortable in their studies. They love their books. They pride themselves on their sound doctrine. They come alive as they proclaim “the wisdom of God” through carefully-crafted sermons or articles. But when it comes to engaging their people—and even their own families—on a personal level, they are often seen as being aloof, insensitive, or unable to relate to the struggles of real life. What these leaders often fail to realize is that God’s wisdom is primarily relational, not informational. In this talk we will study Jesus’ passion for relationships and apply his teaching to some of the challenging relational issues ministry leaders face every day.
