Church Leaders Campfire looks back to the traditional village when everyone gathered “around the campfire” each evening. Beyond just a place to ward off potential threats from wild animals, the campfire was a relaxed environment where traditions were passed on, heroes and their deeds remembered, characters shaped, friendships forged, the benefits of comradeship and unity developed and enjoyed. Even today campfires serve as a tool that encourages us to ponder life’s deepest questions as we gaze at the stars and dream a little, or stare into the orange glow of the flames.
The fire draws our attention and provides warmth. The strength of its warmth is enhanced when all the embers are unified. When embers fall away from the center of the fire, its bright orange glow quickly fades, but when placed back into the fire, effectiveness returns and begins to burn brightly again.
As church leaders, we need continual exposure to biblical personal wisdom in order for them to radiate throughout our lives. We must keep the embers of success properly placed in the center of the fire and burning brightly in our lives. Church Leaders Campfire is here to help inspire you, encourage you, coach you, heal you and organize you to be more fruitful and effective in your ministry.
