Pastoral Leadership and Church Structure (Part 2)
The organization should always serve the organism. In some churches, the pastoral responsibilities are carried out by one or more of the elders, and in some, the pastor position is distinct from the elders. It’s important for you to make sure that the elders are qualified and that they carry out the duties for which they are responsible. Recognize the structure in your church and your place in it so you know how to relate to people in a way that helps you to lead effectively.
