The Battle for Successful Ministry is in the House

Sometimes the difficulties in serving in ministry is not the work itself, but the people who you are ministering with.

I think one of the things I’m learning as a leader is that successful work in the kingdom of God is very much dependent on how well people can love and work with each other.

It’s unfortunate that a main reason why missionaries come back from the field is because of interpersonal conflicts. Or how founding members of pastoral teams don’t often stick around for long. It’s because we need to learn how to work with the people we work with.

So I think what I’m trying to say is this:

No matter how crazy awesome the ministry is that you’re working in, focus your energies on the people you are ministering with.

Unity, love, respect on the team will be a tipping point on whether the ministry will thrive or fall. It is probably the first and quickest target for Satan to bring down powerful ministries.
