Leading a church requires a pastor to have vision, compassion and above all, a humble heart that is willing to hear the Lord. Often times a disconnect occurs between the pastor and the core team of the church. It is very frustrating, because the pastor knows where he wants to go, while the leadership believes he is not sure where he is going. It is here where I would like to propose an answer to this gap between the pastor and the leadership team.
Leadership requires giving forethought to everyday activities and preparing written policies to ensure a consistent performance of those activities. Why? Because, without established polices, those that serve within the leadership of the church lack the tools necessary to carry out the vision of the pastor. That is often the failing point of many ministries.
