"As much as we plan and prepare and strategize and implement, ministry will always be inefficient. At the root of the call to ministry is a call to shepherd and love people toward godliness. And this is never a straight line. Life cannot be mechanized into a program, and there are no assembly lines for life change. Prayer is inefficient. Discipleship is inefficient. These things have no measurable end"
