The latest leadership coaching video with Mark Driscoll was focused on your identity not being found within your ministry but rooted in Christ as we read in the book of Ephesians. This goes against our culture as one typically thinks that they get to create their own identity, but this is no longer true for those that follow Christ.
Driscoll points out three things that we tend to build our identity off, but he reminds us that although these things may help explain us, they are not where are identity is to be found.
1. You're not your gifts so you're identity should not be found there.
2. You're not your position whether that be pastor/elder, deacon, etc.
3. You're not ultimately your performance.
