(Are you signed up for our National Conference in November? Get all the details here!)

“If you can’t stay afloat, you can’t help anybody.”

Dale is BACK from his 40-day Sabbatical. And he has quite the story to share with you. Let’s just say that the Sabbatical went nothing like he expected… 🙂

Today, Dale shares that story, what brought him to the end of himself, and how God allowed experiences that reinforced the Stalled message in his life. Listen in!

Key Takeaways

1) “When we get to a place in ministry where we’re bigger than Jesus, we’re in trouble.” When people talk more about us, or the methods of our church or our pastoring, than Jesus, we’re in trouble.

2) Do the people most important in your life know that you love them? More than anything else, we want to encourage you to take the time this week to really tell them and show them they’re most important.

3) Trauma affects you greatly. What unaddressed trauma do you have in your life? From the last year, and even as far back as childhood?

4) “If you can’t stay afloat, you can’t help anybody.” Pastor, how close are you to not being able to stay afloat?
