A Pentecostal Vision of Pastoral Excellence

  • Consistent practice of spiritual disciplines
  • Maintenance of the pastor's physical, emotional, familial, and financial health
  • Ministry and leadership in covenant with other pastors and believers
  • Effective preaching and teaching of the Word
  • Compassionate care, discipleship, and spiritual direction for hurting and searching people
  • Effective leadership and administration of local church ministry
  • Multiplication of ministry by mentoring and coaching others in a shared journey of mutual development
