Maybe your first car comes to mind. The freedom of leaving your parents’ house and driving on your own!

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish) Français (French) العربية (Arabic)Reshared with kind permission from Aaron Buer of Breeze Church Recently I found myself in a fascinating conversation with a pastor who is in his 4th decade of ministry and still thriving in his role. How someone survives this long with a heart alive to God and a passion for people and the church is something I’m deeply interested in. I’m guessing you are as well. Two moments in, this conversation shocked me and revealed the character qualities required for such a long and faithful run in ministry. I’m […]
