Senior Pastors Jeremiah Willemse and Chris Sloster

This week’s Top 10 list is dedicated to Pastor Chris Sloster of Revival Centre and Pastor Jeremiah Willemse of Petra Life Church, both of whom reside in South Africa.  I was in Virginia on Tuesday helping host the Vision 2017 Roundtable (you can read all of my notes from this event by clicking HERE).

During the first break both men walked up to me and introduced themselves.  They mentioned they were avid readers of this site, particularly the weekly Top 10 list.  It was a complete joy connecting with these two dear Christian brothers who are both doing an incredible work.

God is so good!  He has allowed technology to connect people on opposite sides of the world to encourage and resource each other.  Pastor Chris has even agreed to arrange a great white shark expedition if I ever make it to South Africa!

Pastor Chris and Pastor Jeremiah, it was an honor meeting you this week.  I hope you enjoy this week’s list.  The insights are from some of God’s finest servants.  Their thoughts will help you and all leaders be more effective.
