2016 Lay School – What Kind of Leaders Does Your Church Need?
Back in the day, many churches were led by pastors who fashioned themselves after CEOs of companies. Then came recognition that laypeople could and would be pretty good leaders. Today, churches are changing so much that an altogether new kind of leadership – by both clergy and laity – is needed for surviving and thriving. This will be a three-part series examining leadership for churches today, including questions such as:
- What are the qualities that define leadership?
- Why have churches changed so much that they can’t be run like they used to be run?
- Are there some good examples out there of churches that have reorganized leadership?
- Am I a leader or a follower?
Along the way we will discuss practical things such as committees vs. ministry teams, church vitality and growth, and cultivating volunteers.
