Tips for Leading the Church in a Healthy Direction

From the first appendix to 9Marks of a Healthy Church:

  1. Be truthful.  Ask God to keep you faithful to His written Word. Never underestimate the power of teaching truth.
  2. Be trustful.  Rely on God rather than on your own gifts and abilities. Spend time in prayer privately, with others, and with the congregation.
  3. Be positive. Pray that you neither be nor be perceived to be fundamentally a critic.
  4. Be particular. Contextualize God’s concern for His church. Use the good resources of your church’s own history. Learn from older members about the history of your church.
