Joe Hoagland: 3 Pastoral Resolutions for 2019

Everyone around you is creating or has created resolutions for 2019. They want to eat better, be more active, be a better person, etc. Maybe you have started on working on some of these resolutions as well.

If you are a pastor I think there are three resolutions you should look at committing to in 2019. Here they are:

Love Better

The first pastoral resolution for 2019 is to love better. This is not just “loving your people better” or “loving your staff better.” I’m talking about upping your love game in your whole life.

How can you love God better in 2019?

How can you love your spouse and family better in 2019?

How can you love your church better in 2019?

How can you love your neighbors better in 2019?

I hope as we go into the New Year that we all resolve to love better as pastors.

Lead Better

Recently, Brandon wrote a really good article on developing a personal growth plan. Check it out here: How to Develop a Personal Growth Plan as a Pastor

We are not going to make any headway as a leader and pastor in 2019 if we are not working on ourselves.
