7 Important Things I’ve Learned in 40+ Years of Working with Pastors

by vernsanders on October 25, 2010

Every month I write an article for Monday Morning Email (which you should subscribe to if you are reading this and you are a church musician…). The latest one concerns some important things I’ve learned from working with pastors. You can get all the details here, but here are the 7 things:

Some Pastors Have a Clock in Their Head, Most Do Not

Pastors Don’t Have to be Great Preachers to be Great Pastors

Pastors Often Preach About What is Bothering Them Personally

You Can Tell a Lot About a Pastor by Looking at Their Staff’s Salaries

If Everything Has to Go Across a Pastor’s Desk, the Church Won’t Grow

Congregations are not Objective about Pastors in Their Role as Leaders, nor are the Objective about Pastors as People

Pastors Will Win Every Argument

You may not agree, but I think these things are important. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear what you’ve learned…
