During any given week, I receive dozens of requests from pastors or other ministers for ministerial advice. I try to respond to as many as possible, but often find myself without the sufficient time to answer them all.
So in an effort to better serve local churches, I’m starting a new feature here at the blog. Every few weeks, I’ll post a topic for discussion on my Facebook page. Then in a future blog post, I’ll answer the questions and attempt to provide direction and clarity in doing so.
The first topic we will address is church staffing. In my time as a consultant with Rainer Group, one of the most important aspects we noticed in healthy churches was the staffing of those churches. In his book Good to Great, Jim Collins places a great importance on the need for businesses to have the right people on the bus. Churches are no different.
So whether you have administrative questions (personnel policies, position requirements, etc.) or just need advice on how to handle certain situations in a ministry context, the floor is yours. Ask away.
If you have a church-specific question and anonymity is absolutely needed, you may ask your question in the comments below. If not, please use the comments section at the Facebook page.
