Rookie Mistakes I and Others Have Made

  Posted on   by   No comments

Hershael York had an interesting blog post entitled, “5 Rookie Pastor Mistakes.” And admittedly, I have made every one of those makes and then some. I just wished there was a seminary class that actually warned of such folly. But I have a feeling, even if there was one, I would have probably assumed I would never succumb to such things. Here they are:

  1. Have high expectations of the church
  2. Fall to embrace the church’s unique culture
  3. Invoke pastoral authority without earning pastoral credibility
  4. Mistake preference for conviction
  5. Show fear or anger in the face of opposition
