“As a pastor I want as many people in the boat with me as possibe. That way they can help bail out water rather than watch from the shore and say ‘there goes the pastor; look at him paddle; oh, no the boat is leaking; watch the boat sink; poor pastor'”!
-Dave Osborne, who has served as pastor of many major Seventh-day Adventist Churches as well as North American Division Ministerial Director. He realizes that rather than simply pursuing his own course the pastor needs to work alongside the members to keep the work of God going forward. He Knows What He’s Talking About (H.K.W.H.T.A.).
