Leading In the New Year [Audio]

As a Pastor, I’ve always gotten excited about January 1. Everybody is busy at Christmas and while it’s a great time for outreach, it’s also a great time to get distracted from kingdom growth. January provides a month when people are calming down, seeking peace, and making fresh starts and new commitments. It’s the perfect time to challenge a congregation to go forward.

I’ve recorded about a 6 minute audio talk about leading in the new year, casting vision, and setting an agenda for forward progress.

I would love to hear your thoughts about leading a congregation around January 1. If you’re a leader, how do you lead? If you’re a member of a church, how do you respond to leadership around the new year?
