Leading Your Staff Through Personal Growth

by Chris Railey

I’ve served under some amazing leaders during my time in ministry. Leaders who personally invested in me beyond what I can do in return for them, and their willingness to do so has marked and shaped my own life and leadership.

God calls us to grow people, not just the Church. One is simply a byproduct of the other. There are plenty of ups and downs in ministry, but one thing that never has to go into a slump is the commitment to, and joy that comes from, helping others grow and succeed. Below are a few ways you can do that.
