Not Making Things Happen

Part of me... will always be a youth pastor. Recently Mark Riddle wrote a fantastic piece for ys about youth pastors feeling the pressure to make things happen. I think the same pressure is often felt by church planters. His article was a good reminder to me that it is really HIS church (not Mark's but God's).

It’s important for you to understand something.
You aren’t called to make things happen in your church.
Oh, you may be paid to make things happen, but it’s not God calling you to plan, lead and pull off all that unsustainable stuff. It’s not God calling you build it all, or convince others to build your vision either.
