As the leader goes, so goes the organization they lead. What does health look like for a leader? In today’s episode—Part 2 of a 2-part series—John and Jim unpack two more consistent behaviors observed in pastors who’ve maintained robust health over a long period of time.

Here are the show notes:

Healthy pastors work from their identity, not for their identity

  • Healthy pastors get their identity more from the God they love than the people they serve.
  • If you’re a pastor who loves Jesus, your identity is this: You are an adopted son or daughter who is unconditionally loved by a good Father!

Healthy pastors share the load

  • Sharing the ministry load doesn’t always come naturally to a pastor. If you’re a perfectionist and a pastor, you have double trouble. Jesus, the best leader of all time took a different approach:
  • He chose the Twelve. He demonstrated the work of the Kingdom while they observed. After that, He delegated a small venture to them (Luke 10:1-23) and provided immediate feedback upon their return. Finally, He fully empowered them to do the work of the Kingdom (Matthew 28:18-20).

So, pastor… are you healthy? For real?
