Tony Putman recently invited me to speak at the Louisiana Young Ministers' Institute. He assigned me the topic, "What Success in Ministry Looks Like." The funny thing is... I ended up telling the students that success looks something like "Tony Putman."
You see, Tony was in our very first youth group in 1992, and I'm proud to say that I taught him his very first guitar cords! Today, Tony is an amazing Youth Pastor and worship leader. In my opinion, I think Tony is a far better youth pastor than I ever was, and without a doubt, a better guitar player than I ever hoped to be!
For me, success is found in helping people fulfill their calling and potential in Christ! So many people, with so much potential, just need someone to believe in them! When you empower people to live out their calling and purpose, you can't help but be successful!
If you're interested, here's the podcast. Thanks, Tony!
