Ministry throws unexpected challenges at you. What if a little more training could help you navigate them successfully?
Though church leaders take courses in preaching and Christian education, when do they learn about personal limitations and the benefits of intimate friendships? Or what about conflict resolution? Knowledge gaps like these are often the primary factors that lead to frustration and burnout.
In What Great Ministry Leaders Get Right, Jimmy Dodd of PastorServe and Renaut van der Riet of Mosaic Church Winter Garden FL outline the six core competencies church leaders need to develop healthy, biblical, and sustainable leadership. Jimmy and Renaut address the critical lessons often missing from ministry training that all leaders need to successfully serve their congregations. Whether you’ve been in the pulpit for years or are just beginning your ministry education, every pastor can make sure they’re prepared for the real-world challenges of ministry.
RENAUT VAN DER RIET is passionate about living, teaching, and leading in a way that shows the Gospel of Jesus to be true and beautiful. He lives out that passion first and foremost with his family. Of all the roles he fills, none is as important to him as being a husband to his wife, Brooke, and father to their eight children, four of whom are adopted from Ethiopia. In 2002, he and Brooke founded Mosaic Church in Winter Garden, FL. It has become a nationwide pacemaker for fostering and adoption and a sought after model of how ministries can respond to childhood special needs and trauma care. He is developing The ReStory, a project aimed at providing Gospel clarity to followers of Christ and extending them an invitation to consider how their lives might be different if they dared to believe Galatians 5:1 -- "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free."
