Chowtime – 12/14

With Christmas closely approaching, there may have been a few things you might have missed…here are a few of those things.  So grab some chow  and chew on these things:

Stat to Chew on…The typical pastor has his/her greatest ministry impact at a church in years 5 through 14 of his pastorate; unfortunately, the average pastor lasts only five years at a church. (thanks Alan Fadling)

Quote to Digest…”A leader is a dealer in hope.” —Napoleon Bonaparte

Student Ministry Blogs to bite into
