Tim Keller’s Advice on Doing Ministry in NY Is Valuable for All Church Leaders

The pastor also stressed the importance of holding to the inerrancy of Scripture and maintaining a faithfulness to “historic Christian doctrine with and [sic] openness to and emphasis on the arts.” Believers should balance a focus on Christian community “with an integration of faith and work in the public sectors of society.”

Finally, said Keller, it is essential to practice “servant-leadership and openness to ideas and criticism rather than coercive, abusive, and top-down leadership.” Keller noted that he expounds on the concepts he listed in the thread in his book, “Center Church: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City.”
