This article by Patrick L. Clements, President of Church Extension Plan, appeared in Vol. 5 Issue 3 of the June 2008 Leadership Source edition, located on the CEP website.
Here's an excerpt: "I think there is a key issue that has to be settled in the life of a pastor if he/she is going to be successful. Truly, it must be settled in the life of any church leader, if he/she is going to really have the impact that God intends for them to have. The primary issue for ministry today is integrity. We Americans pledge allegiance to 'one nation under God,' but as I look around it seems that we sometimes conduct our lives as though it's 'one nation under greed.' It impacts you and me as church leaders. We have to seal ourselves against that influence. Integrity has genuinely come under fire and abuse in our culture."
