Leading a church isn’t easy.  Pastors must organize their ministries so they can stay joyful, intentional and committed. Vision for growth is not reserved for pastors of mega churches, it’s something God gives to every leader and every church. Keep seeking God and His vision for your church.  Here are a few quotes I have collected for pastors and leaders growing churches.
