Last night we had a question and answer session with Charlie Cleverly in college. Charlie has been greatly used by God in leading churches, in both England and France. Here are some of the things he said - slightly paraphrased, of course.
The most important thing for people going into the ordained ministry is knowing God, and spending time with him.
The most difficult thing when leading a successful church is to keep trusting in God and looking to him for guidance and direction rather than in management and administration.
