Thom and Sam have a fascinating discussion regarding the number one missing ingredient in church leadership.

  • Accountability: It’s more than a system. It’s more than theology. It’s a spiritual discipline.
  • Pray that God will introduce people and situations to keep you accountable.
  • Don’t rely on just your church for accountability. 
  • Make accountability a priority.
  • Create overlapping circles of accountability.
  • Be public about who holds you accountable.
