Leadership as Stewardship

Leadership Network 2013 Succession Online Event


In this 5-minute video from the 2013 Succession Online Event, Scott Wilson, Senior Pastor of The Oaks Fellowship in Dallas, Texas, encourages leaders to think of themselves as stewards, not owners, and consider how they can tee up the next generation to be bigger, better, and stronger.  

As you watch this session, take notes and write down thoughts about how it can impact the way you lead and transition.

It’s easy to feel a sense of ownership when you’re pastoring a church. Scott presented a different—more biblical—perspective, though. How can you shift your mindset from ownership to stewardship? What difference might that shift make in how you treat your ministry and its people?
