The People Priority

esterday was a day to be remembered. A beautiful farewell to a church I’ve served for seven years. Would that all such ministry farewells were characterized by the kind of mutual love and respect we’ve experienced at LifeQuest Church!

It struck me in the tear-stained aftermath that the most important part of worship ministry was made quite clear to me today, if I ever had any doubts. You see, what moved my heart today had very little to do with “successes” in the way we commonly think of them. Not leadership endeavors, nor programs created, nor events executed, nor progress made. Rather, it was the relationships built, the friendships forged.

This week, as you embark on your weekly routine, take pause to place the people above the rest. You have no task more important than the people you serve!


  1. Praise the Lord, and great job to you for the relationships being priority… I know first hand the other extreme and that does nothing to serve the church.

    • Thanks, Travis, and well-spoken! Sorry you had that experience. Hope you’ve had some good ones, too :)
