all have issues. The question is… how are we gonna deal with our own, and help those around us find victory and get through their problems.
My Friend Dino Senesi is a rock star!Â He has tremendous expereience in coaching Pastors and Planters for more than 20 years. In that time he has discovered that almost all the issues we deal with as Leaders fall in one of five areas.
God ~ Family ~ Health ~ Time ~ People
Then we ask ourselves five critical questions…
5-Questions about each area:
Lets look at a likely scenario of Â a typical pastor, who has some areas of struggle. He can’t deal with all 5-areas at once, so he see’s his top three as Family~People & Health…
