When a ministry enters a new season, we must open the door for new leaders.
The “old guard” often resents new seasons. I’m a big believer in working hard to lead the tenured believers toward new life. Sometimes, though, they refuse to move forward.
In those times, we have to help people grow. If we can’t help people grow with the new direction, we need to be willing to allow some people to move on.
During these transitional seasons, I’m always looking for new leaders. Often they arise from right in front of you. There could be faithful people that were serving under others who seem to rise from nowhere when there is a new chance to lead.
When the current changes, keep your eyes open to new people God will raise up.
