Kevin Ford and Jim Singleton: What Happens When Church Leaders Are Not ‘Attentive’

“Don’t minimize just being a wonderful pastor…every good pastoral moment is one of those things that builds trust.”

“Getting a church moving forward, you know, it usually needs a sense of urgency of, why do we want to move forward? And you have to find where that point of urgency is.”

“Over time, I’ve learned that to be attentive to God and attentive to my congregation and attentive to the culture, it’s going to take a process. And that process is usually longer than I want it to be. But to allow this whole body to move, let’s take the time it takes.”
