Gerardo Martí: What Pastors Need to Learn From the Collapse of Robert H. Schuller’s Megachurch

“Many, many good Christian people are being manipulated by people who are eager for their votes and eager for their money.”

“Pastors, first of all, need to be willing to confront things in their own lives. That’s not easily measured, but there are a lot of things that we bring into the ministry that we may not even realize that are affecting our ministry and our relationships with other people and what we seek to reproduce in our congregations.”

“Can we raise up more models for what ministry is looking like in everyday people’s lives in the world today? That’s what I would love to see more on Sunday morning.”
