“We often over-estimate what we can accomplish in ONE year, and far under-estimate what we can accomplish in FIVE years.”
I don’t know where I heard that quote, but I have experienced it to be true over the years in my pastoral leadership. I know there have been times when I’ve “over-reached” with unrealistic goals for a single year. And I have also seen God accomplish WAY more in a 5-year time span than I ever thought possible!
In this podcast episode I encourage pastors and church leaders to look ahead and cast a HUGE vision, believing God for great things over the next 4-5 years.
