QUALITY #5 - A Campus Pastor Is...

SACRIFICIAL


Sacrifice and Leadership go hand in hand.  Do you want to have the ministry Jesus had?  He gave His life.  Not only that He gave up night’s of sleep, meals, time, energy, and more everyday in order to lead His disciples.

Graniteism-
YOU CAN’T LEAD SOMEONE IN SOMETHING YOU AREN’T DOING YOURSELF
BLESSED TO BE A BLESSING
YOU CAN’T OUTGIVE GOD
SHEPHERDS SHEPHERD, SHEEP SHEEP

Example:  Sacrifice can be spelled a bunch of different ways “I-N-C-O-N-V-E-N-I-E-N-C-E” “L-A-T-E N-I-G-H-T-S” and “L-O-N-G D-A-Y-S” but Sacrifice always costs us something.  As a Campus Pastor your team will grow in proportion to what you personally sacrifice to pour into them.

Wonder why people aren’t growing in their giving?  Check and see if you are growing in your giving.

Wonder why your team isn’t growing a team around them like you expect?  Check around you, are they being the team that you want them to have?  Are you checking in, making time for relationship, sacrificing “you-time” or the most recent episode of survivor on your DVR?  

Does your campus know that their Campus Pastor and their team is really there for them?  How would they know that if you hadn’t shown it, spent the time to connect with them, taken them out for coffee, got to know their family, answered their emails, text messages, returned phone calls, etc.


BOTTOM LINE - SACRIFICE is most often SPELLED TIME.  It’s the one thing you can’t get back.  You can’t make more of it.  But when it’s well spent, the returns are INVALUABLE.
