Clint Pressley, Lead Pastor of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte NC, joins EST in this episode to discuss how to develop an appropriate work ethic as a pastor and minister. We talk about the dangers of not working hard and why so many people in ministry seem to develop a lazy approach to their labor. We also share ways you can develop a tenacity in the field that will lead to church support and respect among community leaders. There are even some pointers about how to keep yourself from worshiping your work product and resting in the reality that ministry never stops.
