Five Solutions for the Weary Pastor: A Personal Note to Church Members

by Thom S. Rainer

4. Be a source of unity. Don’t join the bandwagon of critics about churches and pastors: “I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose” (1 Corinthians 1:10, NLT).

5. Seek to be a Great Commission Christian. Pray for opportunities to share what Christ has done in your life. Invite people to church. Start a new group in your church where you invite those not in a church to join you.

Obviously, this list is not exhaustive. But it can be a good start.

By the way, thank you for taking time to read this article and listen.

P. S. Don’t forget to join us tomorrow to introduce a major new initiative called Church Equip. Register here: (This will now take you to the Church Equip homepage now that the webinar is over. To view a replay of the webinar, click here).
