Pastors not passionate about God’s empowering vision for their congregation are likely to gain a reputation as mediocre.
Let’s admit it. From everything we know fewer than 20 percent of all pastors are true visionaries with a deep passion surrounding what will characterize their congregation if they live into the call of God upon them.
Without an awareness of vision from God for their congregation, pastors will do more wandering around than moving forward. Their ministry and reputation will be mediocre. They may be nice persons, as one called into Christian ministry, but also as one without sharp and decisive spiritual gifts surrounding leadership.
They may love their congregation, and their congregation may love them. The congregation may call them effective, but that will generally be because even the congregation sees mediocrity as excellence.
