The Three Voices of Effective Pastoral Leadership

1. The Pastoral Voice

Jesus, the Great Shepherd, said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27 NIV)

2. The Practical Voice

James, the half brother of Jesus said, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22 NIV)

3. The Prophetic Voice

As Paul instructed young Timothy, we must, “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction.” (2 Timothy 4:2 NIV)
