Tactical patience means waiting to change things when the time is right. Shepherds often get into trouble when they rush into change. Today we discuss how to grow in that patience.
Question of today's listener:
Guys, can you share some tips on how to grow in tactical patience? Without asking you to share the details of that situation, what advice do you have for others who face similar situations?
Highlights of the episode:
- "If you do not commit yourself to stay in a reimplantation or serious revitalization for at least five years, then do not go."
- Hiring a younger pastor does not automatically mean that your church will immediately attract younger families.
- One of the signs of a mission-oriented church is that you can celebrate what God is doing in other churches.
