Bil Cornelius Lead Pastor
Bay Area Fellowship Corpus Christi, Texas
A turning point for our ministry was when I realized people will come and go. It wasn’t my job to keep everyone happy but to move with the “movers.” Not everyone will agree with your vision. Your burden for lost people must be valued more than your desire to please saved people.
For us, it comes down to people receiving Christ and committing to getting involved in the church. How many people get saved alone will help you change lives. How many commit to the church’s vision by being involved gives you the momentum to change a city.
GETTING DOWN TO WORK
My first priority is to listen to God long enough to have his direction, then take action toward those ministry objectives. I truly believe the most underutilized weapon in a pastor’s arsenal is his prayer life.
