The Problem of Pastor as Rock Star

Ed Stetzer guest posted for Tim Challies on the dangers of the pastor becoming a rock star.

Here is an excerpt:

A gifted communicator can draw a crowd, but biblical community will sustain a congregation. A great orator is fun to have at worship, but cannot build community during the other six days and 23 hours of the week. Great preaching will be used by God to bring others to faith and sanctify God’s people, but it will also encourage the body to do life together on mission.

By the way, Ed Stetzer will be preaching at Desert Springs this Sunday.
