As a minister of the Gospel of Christ you are an exemplar. Your way of life is a model- and it must be so.

It is ridiculous to serve in Christian ministry and to shrink from the exposure and vulnerability befitting your station. A leader stands.

Sometimes that means you get to stand, alone. Always it means you are visible in ways that those who follow are not. My invitation is to embrace the reality and necessity of standing up, of standing out, and of standing alone—or get out of Christian ministry.
