Church leaders may see what needs to change, but their words can have a powerful impact on culture if not used well. For instance, leaders should say what people can handle and what can help them grow. In addition, a leader’s words can carry more weight and kill conversations or motivation. Speak when necessary and use your words carefully.

Pastor Ron Edmonson writes that ministry has changed in many significant ways since he started serving at his church. Edmonson’s own ministry has changed as he’s had to be a better leader since people aren’t naturally committed to serving the church, there is more competition for time, more competition for teaching, and the concerns of pastors have gotten more complex, with security taking on a bigger part of their time.
