Many pastors inherit broken churches. The prospect of shepherding there for the long-haul can be mentally draining. In this episode, Sam and Josh interview Clint Pressley, Senior Pastor of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte, N.C. Preparing for a long-term pastorate means maintaining the discipline of balance, especially at the beginning and end of your day. Give yourself time to breathe and unwind in the morning and evening because the middle of the day can be chaotic. Pastors who survive long-term are the ones who work hard but also keep a maintainable structure to each day. In a broken church, two kinds of leaders are typically needed. One that is a catalyst for change and another that can shepherd for the long haul. Sometimes these two leaders are two different pastors. Other times these two leaders are the same pastor that wears two different hats.
