Man. Do I approach the Bible like this? Challenging.

It’s a task/project management system. I’m a Things person myself, but the team part of things is something that i’m not too fond of for our team. Trello might fit the bill. Plus it’s free and that always helps sell us on something!
Here are a few of the things that I love about it…
I know this might seem crazy to some of you. But in my new role, I’ve got some people to hire. How can I hire world changers with limited resources? How can I hire people to change the world with only a part time position?
This will seem crazy but it’s my only possible strategy.
That’s it. I have no second option. We will work hard and grill people with intense interview questions. We will make a great job description and will put on our best faces when we meet with prospective candidates. Our culture is healthier than ever. But hiring world changers part time with little pay? Impossible.
I truly believe in the power of prayer. So I’m praying that God sends us world changers who develop other world changers to work for not that much and for only a few hours but are willing to work hard to change the world.
Praying that in the middle of a tough economy, God provides.
That’s option A.
What are some of the things that I should be thinking about when hiring people besides offering prayers to the Almighty?
I can think of about 993 different contexts of talking about balance. School/work, Work/Family, Left foot/Right foot, etc.
In my life I’m currently seeking a new balance between leading and listening. I’ve been training my replacement in Switch and it’s been a fun and exciting and humbling, mostly humbling experience. This past Sunday I sat in a room with Ryan as he was leading his first leader meeting.
Have you ever told your kids that you’ve decided something to keep them safe? I wonder sometimes what the goal is of teaching our kids the value of safety. I also wonder if we, local church staffs, have made safety the #1 value in our ministries.
