As a church grows, what sort of management roles does it need to fill?
The sixth part of an informal discussion about church growth and leadership between three experienced pastors: Ray Evans (Grace Community Church Bedford & FIEC Church Leadership Consultant), Paul Rees (Charlotte Chapel Edinburgh) and Michael Teutsch (Highfields Church Cardiff).
Some questions for further thought or discussion:
- ‘Tribal Chief/Chief Medicine Man/Chief Administrative Officer’ may seem unfamiliar descriptions to you. What do you think they mean?
- Is there anyone in your church who can take the ‘Chief Administrative’ material or the ‘Make the Practical Happen’ issues away from you to free you up? How can you more effectively empower someone to do this?
- What are some of the reasons why serving in well-functioning teams are important for members as a church grows?
