In this episode I interview Craig T. Owens, a pastor, author, co-host of the podcast “The Craig and Greg Show”, and a blogger at CraigTOwens.com.
Craig and I talk about the subjects addressed in his recent book, Shepherd Leadership: The Metrics that Really Matter.
Some of the important subjects include:
- Using biblical metrics for pastoral ministry
- The tendency to lead based in confidence or humility
- The essential nature of sabbath in a life of ministry
- The relationship of wisdom to shepherding
- The importance of overcoming guilt as a motivator for decisions in ministry
There’s also an important undercurrent throughout the episode about putting our servanthood into action first, knowing that only then will a servant’s heart follow.
