Three of the most common mistakes leaders make
and how to avoid them.
Since I speak to thousands of people in our sanctuary each week
and since those people keep coming back
it seems safe to conclude that I am an excellent communicator. Or so I assumed for years.
Recently, however, I have discovered that my communication skills are not nearly as refined as my congregation would have me believe. Seminary training can mislead. If we're not careful, we might come away from our studies believing public communication skills are paramount in ministry.
