Inside Lost in Logistics

Why Church Leaders Are Frustrated

We can all relate to too many meetings and a lack of clarity about decision making that leave pastors and board/committee members at their wits end.

Understanding the Hallmarks of Healthy Decision Making

In many churches, roles and responsibilities are confused. Many times it appears that the pastor and staff minister, the congregation governs, and the board leads and manages. There is a better way.

Planning for a Better Way

Think about your congregation’s future in terms of a board that works with pastoral leadership to imagine the future, and to hold the pastor accountable to lead in a way in which that vision is fulfilled.

Communicating the Need for Change

Once leaders begin planning the look of the new structure and fine-tuning it, the very important task of communicating with the congregation remains.
