What does transforming leadership look like for Pastor Prince Rivers?

Note: What is the impact of the Transforming Center in the lives of leaders? Prince Rivers, Senior Pastor at United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church, reflects on his Transforming Community® experience.

I have been a pastor for 15 years. Most pastors spend the majority of their time pouring out without ever having anyone pour into them. The Transforming Community experience has been like a well of living water.

It is changing…

•  The way I lead (discernment rather than decision-making)
•  The way I pray
•  The way I am present with my family
•  The way I engage the scriptures I preach
•  The way I focus my energies and choose my priorities

All of this results in positive changes in the church that I serve as pastor.
