So – here are 3 ways to overcome your Pressure Points.
#1 – Confront Your Pressure Points.
I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this, but some people in ministry deal with Pressure Points by running away from them. It could be avoiding a difficult conversation with a staff or team member. Or putting off finding a solution to a difficult challenge indefinitely. Some even try to escape the pressures of ministry through wasting time on less important matters.
#2 – Grow Through Your Pressure Points
The reason your current Pressure Points exist in your life right now is because God wants you to grow through them. As Rick Warren said in The Purpose Driven Life, “God is more interested in your character than your comfort.” So look at your current Pressure Point as an opportunity for spiritual, personal, and ministry growth.
These leadership and growth challenges are areas that the professors in my Seminary didn’t prepare me for.
But they are at the very heart of leading thriving worship teams in our churches.
#3 – Get advice from someone who has been where you are . . . and succeeded through it.
One of the best ways to grow through a Pressure Point is to talk to someone who has “been there, done that.”
