Reading The Church Leader's Answer Book, a new textbook for the Church Leadership Course I teach (via correspondance) for the Wesleyan Church.
It's a fabulous book that covers just about every aspect of pastoral leadership -- spiritual foundation, administration, budgets, facilities, conflict resolution, missions, prayer, preaching, relationships, rest, renewal, personal health -- and a whole lot more. Many different people contributed articles for the thome (published recently by Christianity Today.)
In one article, Nancy Beach asks the following "Ministry Check-Up Questions":
1. How are you emotionally?
2. How are your key relationships?
3. Are you having fun?
4. What's your attitude towards people?
5. Are you hearing God?
