From Karl Vater’s Pivot blog:
Many successful businesspeople have flamed out trying to plant or pastor a church. Some left a successful business for full-time ministry, only to burn out and go back to the business world. Some started in ministry, then quit to go into business, where they finally found success.
It’s much easier to start or run a successful business than to plant or pastor a successful church.
And when I say ‘successful church’ I don’t mean a big, growing one. I mean a solid, healthy one – of any size.
