For ministry and ministry leaders to remain healthy, taking the time to stop and evaluate is a must. Why? Because the natural trajectory of ministry isn’t toward simplicity and narrowed focus, but instead addition and complexity. When left unchecked and in the background, this “scope creep” can begin to silently but effectively choke out health.
Pruning isn’t just a leader’s obligation; it’s their opportunity—to regain their effectiveness, vibrancy, and momentum.
