Last year was certainly one of the most difficult, stressful, and exhausting for many pastors and their churches. COVID forced them to move into the digital sphere like never before and find new and innovative ways to engage with their communities while juggling state guidelines and regulations. 

Whether you're leading a megachurch in a large city or a small flock in a rural town, you were probably already low on energy and working overtime just to make everything happen. Then the pandemic came along and yanked the tracks out from under the rollercoaster. 

This week, Josh & Stan put forth five practical and effective suggestions for pastors & church leaders coming out of 2020:

  • K.I.S.S. — Keep It Simple, Stupid
  • Invest in a good planner/calendar of some kind. 
  • Try to be more active in 2021. 
  • Adopt a church-planter attitude. 
  • Keep your expectations realistic.
