Discover Ministry Briefing! --> The Best Way To Keep "In The Know"!


Who’s Your Newman?

Every church leader has their Newman…

And you know exactly who he/she is.  :)

You know… the person you find annoying.

The person who’s always foiling your plans.

The person you just don’t care for.

Thing is… you have to work with ‘Newmans’ every week.  Maybe they’re on your staff.  Maybe they’re on your board.

Hopefully you’re not married to your ‘Newman’.

Who’s YOUR ‘Newman’?

And more importantly… how do you deal with ‘Newmans’ in a ministry context?

OK… go… tell your story.

    Currently I don’t have a Newman, but I’m sure to get a new one in the future.

    I find the annoying people in my life to be one of God’s chief tools for shaping character. It is the difficult people who bring to the surface our own character faults (lack of love, pride, selfish anger, meanness, etc.); every time God puts an annoying person in your life use them as a training tool to build your spiritual muscle. To paraphrase an old saying, “You are someone else’s Newman.”

    I’m less worried about who my Newman is, as to whom am I their Newman! Having a church leader who frustrates you is a hard place to live.
