Ask pastors whether they are frustrated, and most of them will say they are, for a variety of reasons. Too often, they think their people problems are outside their control. “If we change our perspective and transform our leadership strategy,” writes Scott Wilson, however, “the people near us right now can become exponential leaders who have an impact on generation after generation of others.”
In this episode of the Influence Podcast, I’m talking to Wilson about five ways pastors can build relationships for effective leadership in the local church. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.
Scott Wilson is Global Pastor at Oaks Church in Red Oak, Texas, which he led for nearly 20 years. He is founder of Ready Set Grow, a “a ministry to help churches breakthrough their growth barriers,” as well as 415 Leaders, whose vision for mentoring is “multiplying spiritual fathers and mothers to multiply churches.” He is author of Impact: Releasing the Power of Influence, published earlier this year by Avail Books.
