As another year winds down, it’s a great time for reflection and self-examination before we head into 2011.
In this mindset of looking back and examining myself, I recently re-read John Wesley’s 12 Rules for Preachers.
Wesley was a man used by God in a powerful way – he was a game-changer in terms of sharing the gospel and in building systems to make the biggest impact for the Kingdom.
I was struck by how appropriate they still are today, so I thought I’d share them with you below:
“1. Be diligent. Never be unemployed. Never be triflingly employed. Never while away time, nor spend more time at any place than is strictly necessary.
“2. Be serious. Let your motto be, ‘Holiness to the Lord.’ Avoid all lightness, jesting, and foolish talking.
“3. Converse sparingly and cautiously with women, particularly with young women.
“4. Take no step towards marriage without solemn prayer to God and consulting with your brethren.
“5. Believe evil of no one unless fully proved; take heed how you credit it. Put the best construction you can on everything. You know the judge is always supposed to be on the prisoner’s side.
“6. Speak evil of no one, else your word, especially, would eat as doth a canker; keep your thoughts within your own breast till you come to the person concerned.
“7. Tell every one what you think wrong in him, lovingly and plainly, and as soon as may be, else it will fester in your own heart. Make all haste to cast the fire out of your bosom.
“8. Do not affect the gentleman. A preacher of the Gospel is the servant of all.
“9. Be ashamed of nothing but sin; no, not of cleaning your own shoes when necessary.
“10. Be punctual. Do everything exactly at the time. And do not mend our rules, but keep them, and that for conscience’ sake.
“II. You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work. And go always, not only to those who want you, but to those who want you most.
“12. Act in all things, not according to your own will, but as a son in the Gospel, and in union with your brethren. As such, it is your part to employ your time as our rules direct: partly in preaching and visiting from i house to house, partly in reading, meditation, and prayer. Above all, if you labour with us in our Lord’s vineyard, it is needful you should do that part of the work which the Conference shall advise, at those times and places which they shall judge most for His glory.
“Observe, it is not your business to preach so many times, and to take care merely of this or that Society, but to save as many souls as you can, to bring as many sinners as you possibly can to repentance, and, with all your power, to build them up in that holiness without which they cannot see the Lord. And, remember, a Methodist preacher is to mind every point, great and small, in the Methodist discipline. Therefore you will need all the grace and sense you have, and to have all your wits about you.”
I encourage you to chew on these twelve rules and feel free to leave a comment.
P.S. Don’t forget that the start of my new Senior Pastor Tele-Coaching Network is only two months away – February 24. You can still receive Over $840.00 in Additional Bonuses if you apply before December 31st – here’s the link to read more and apply now:
It’s a brand new, Senior Pastors-only training called the “2010 Wrap-up and Ramp-up Call,” where I’ll lead you through the year-end questions that I personally use to “wrap-up” one year and “ramp-up” for the next.
In the past, I’ve only offered these questions to those in my coaching networks – and I’ve received a great deal of positive feedback – but just a few days ago the Church Leader Insights team talked me into opening it up for a handful of other Senior Pastors to participate.
In fact, these questions (which I’ve been using and fine-tuning for years personally) will help you revolutionize the way you approach 2011… at least that’s what my coaching participants have told me in past years.
This is a FREE call, but you do need to reserve your spot (we only have a limited number of lines on the conference call).
Don’t wait if you’re interested – we have only sent a couple of emails about this call, and it’s filling up fast. We’ll take down the registration page when it’s full, so if the link below works there’s room for you.
Please see the P.S. below for more details or follow this link to register now:
Have a great Sunday and I hope to speak to you on Tuesday,
P.S. Here are all the details that the team put together:

The end of the year is here and now is a great time to reflect on 2010, and how you did in all aspects of your life.
Not the least of these is how you handled this trust we all share called “church leadership” over the last 12 months.
It’s my prayer that none of us take our roles for granted (not now, not ever).
Three Unspoken Promises a Leader Makes
By Hal Seed
Stepping into leadership can be exhilarating and daunting at the same time. Newly-minted leaders find themselves asking, “Will people follow me? Will they like me? Will I be able to accomplish anything?” Those and a dozen other questions run through their minds.
Meanwhile, followers are asking a reverse set of questions. They want to know, “Is this person trustworthy? Do I want to follow him (or her)? Do I like where they are going?”
Underneath this unspoken exchange is a covenant that all leaders make with everyone who signs up for their cause. Like the questions, this covenant is never verbalized and almost never brought to the level of consciousness. But it’s there, and if you’re going to be a great leader, you need to own it and live up to it.
The leader’s unspoken covenant has three promises:
1. If you follow me, I will make your life better.
2. If you follow me, I will take you where you cannot go without me.
3. If you follow me, I will care about you.
When a follower decides to leave a church, cause, or movement, it’s almost always because one of these three promises has been broken.
Years ago, Kelly asked me to pray that God would give her a baby. Lori and I had experienced some years of infertility, so we knew the pain she was enduring. I prayed often and fervently, but, no baby. A year later, Kelly quietly slipped out of the back of the church. Promise #1 was broken: I hadn’t made her life better.
It didn’t matter that I was incapable of making her life better. Only God could have repaired her reproductive organs. A better life was the unspoken expectation. Without a baby, we had a breach of contract.
A more realistic expectation is that I, as leader, will take the Kellys of this world to places they cannot go on their own. Had Kelly stayed at New Song, she would have seen over 7,000 come to Christ, countless marriages and families helped, and lots of other divine interventions as well.
The easiest deliverable is the “I will care about you,” promise. Leaders often feel stretched thin, but when a parishioner is in a crisis, they expect you to respond. A few years back, a lady in my church lost her sister to spina bifida. Her sister (Diane) and family were long-standing members of Saddleback Church. I was impressed to learn that Rick Warren delivered on promise #3. He showed at Diane’s hospital bed a few days before she died. Promise kept.
On the upside, making people’s lives better, taking them where they cannot go on their own, and caring for them are why we got into leadership in the first place. One of my greatest joys is Scott Evans, a friend ten years my junior who two decades ago made the decision to follow me to San Diego and help me plant New Song. Today he’s the founder of Outreach, Inc., a company that serves churches and ministries nation-wide. He knows that if he had stayed at his computer-industry job, he’d be half the man he is today.
Another is Jim Britts, a man twenty years my junior who has served on my staff for the past nine years. Jim’s passion is youth, and he’s got a talent for screenwriting. He recently released his first film [To Save A Life], which is changing lives all over the world. Jim would have been a success at whatever he put his hand to, but with my encouragement, he’s achieved great things in both youth ministry and the film industry. Nothing could thrill me more.
As New Song has grown, I’ve found it harder to express care to everyone who’s following. Sometimes I don’t hear about people’s sorrows until long after the fact. But when I can look them in the eye within hours of their loss, or pick up the phone and pray for them, those small acts of care go along ways towards fulfilling our covenant.
It’s easy to get busy and forget the unspoken promises we’ve made. Now that they’re at the forefront of your consciousness, how are you doing on them? Think for a minute about the most impressive person in your church, cause or movement. Is your leadership making their life better? Are you taking them somewhere they couldn’t go without you? Have you expressed your care for them lately?
Unfulfilled promises can lead to deep disappointments, whether the promises are ever spoken aloud. But a promise fulfilled is a tree of life, and a great spur to even greater leadership. Because when a leader thinks about making lives better, taking them to greater places, and caring for them, well, that’s what Jesus thinks about and does for each of his followers..
How are you doing with these three promises? How to do you plan to “take people where they can’t go without you” in 2011?
Do you have a plan to keep growing personally, so you can help your people keep growing?

Super Bowl Sunday 2011 is coming up on Sunday, February 6, 2011, the same day as National Porn Sunday.
My friend Craig Gross and the XXXchurch team are passionate about equipping the Church to deal with the overwhelming issue of pornography addiction.
They’ve helped over 300 churches host this event in the past and 2011 is sure to be the biggest ever.
This is a great opportunity for you to bring the issue of porn addiction out of the shadows and offer healing to those who are struggling. In fact, pornography is one of the many subjects that the church remains silent about while the people in our churches long for help…
The Porn Sunday event is free and offers a 30-minute message featuring Craig Gross along with several professional football players speaking about the issue of pornography. When you register, you’ll also receive a Porn Sunday Manual that will help your church prepare.
“Show me someone who has done something worthwhile,and I’ll show you someone who has overcome adversity.”
— Lou Holtz: Author, motivational speaker and former football coach
Zig is one of America’s most popular motivational speakers and the author of over 25 books, including the classic (and one of my personal favorites) See You At the Top. He’s a committed follower of Christ, and has shared his faith with millions over the last 40 years through live and recorded training events.
Ziglar is also a proponent of goal-setting to help you reach your God-given potential. As you may know, I believe that goals are fundamentally statements of faith – faith in what God wants to achieve through you.
And on a practical level, developing a habit of goal-setting in all the different areas of your life is a proven method to increase your motivation, productivity and sense of fulfillment.
That’s why this acrostic really hit home with me (and I hope it will with you too):
See, I told you it was good!
As we wrap up 2010 (only a few weeks left) and prepare for what 2011 might hold, now is a great time to set some Godly Goals (or re-visit the goals you’ve already set).
P.S. If you’re ready to see a marked increase in your productivity, check out my three-hour resource called “Setting and Achieving Godly Goals” – it’s available as an Immediate Download or a 3-CD Set.
