"Whom Are You Helping Up the H.I.L.L.?"
Diane and I had been dating a year by the time we were high school seniors. That was the year a young and newly-married couple became our Sunday School teachers. They taught us a lot about ministering together.
Kirby Hill was a friend I met in college, studying in the same ministry program. He was so far beyond me when it came to theological reflection. His questions, comments, objections and insights were as much a part of my academic training as were my professors’ assignments.
Cecil Taylor was the first pastor I got to see “up close and personal.” I was a Baylor student in an internship, and he was my supervisor. I learned so much in our brief time together, and we still keep in touch (he leads the religion program at the University of Mobile).
This is a small sampling of people who have helped me up the H.I.L.L.
Who’s helped you up the H.I.L.L.? God made us to honor him, invite others to him, love each other, and live his Word—at our church we call that our “H.I.L.L.” to climb. These four actions are the “life purposes” we must fulfill as human beings.
Across the last several weeks in LeaderLines, I’ve pointed out that people are at one of four stages when it comes to these life purposes. If you’re a Hillcrest leader, you should be able to name some people you’re influencing at each stage.
You and I have benefited from the friendship and direction of others, and we need to offer that friendship and direction to others.
As a Hillcrest leader, can you name people you’re influencing?
This edition of LeaderLines is part of a series:
