Can we be honest about something? Many pastors come across to other people as…well…dorky! And while I believe that most pastors have awesome hearts and care deeply for people, if there are things about us that cause us to come across as awkward, out-of-touch, irrelevant, etc. to other people, the end result will be that people will naturally avoid pastors instead of gravitating toward them and desiring to follow their leadership. So in this podcast episode, I discuss some practical things we as pastors can work on to take the dorky factor down a few degrees! Please, instead of being offended by this, learn to laugh at yourself a little, and then be willing to make some adjustments if need be.
