PASTOR CONTROL OR LEADER LEAD

Every church culture is different. I've been in some churches where I could tell that the fear of the senior pastor, board, or treasurer thwarted people from being creative, flexible, and responsive to people as needs arose. Of course, the antithesis of this is a church where there are no rules and everyone just sort of does his or her own thing... \\


The typical result is mediocrity, sloppiness, and haphazard ministry. But there’s a powerful place in the middle where you don’t have to create a million rules to follow but keep it simple.

Thank of that?
