Some helpful thoughts on pastoral leadership and the implementation of leadership vision from Justin Buzzard.
Have God-sized expectations of God, and human-sized expectations of humans.

You’ll discover fresh freedom, and increasingly become a leader whose presence, prayers, dreams, decisions, and sobered disappointments bring new Life and growth to your church and city. You’ll find yourself enjoying God more, enjoying humans more, enjoying yourself more. Great things happen when we expect more from God, and when we expect human-sized outcomes from talented and maturing (but imperfect and moody) humans.
