After listening to a six-page performance review filled with accusations and criticisms, a youth pastor asked his boss, the lead pastor:
"Why did you wait until now to tell me these things? I didn't even know you had concerns with my performance."
The lead pastor replied:
"I want to see how far down I can kick you and if you can get up."
Can you believe a pastor would say such a thing? How should the youth pastor respond? How can he minister life to those he serves while working in such a toxic environment? Have you ever been in a situation like this?
