2. Trains and develop other leaders to help (27%)
3. Strives things in church to be done right (14%)
4. Does not impose his personal opinion (13%)
5. Motivates people to get involved (9%)

    More has important is what God expects of his shepherds. I don’t think he gets his answers from polls.

    If he is a professional pastor, yes, he can do as the opinion polls show but honestly for someone who answers to God, he will do the will of God and not man…

      Troy Day they will at least acknowledge the people of God. Let your light shine (if you have one) so that the world(!) might see and glorify our Father in Heaven.
