10 Things for Pastors

10 Things That Drive Me Crazy About Working for a Church
  1. We are really good at burning people out.
  2. We focus way too much on what we don’t have.
  3. We are afraid of change.
  4. We use “let me pray about it” as an excuse to get out of making decisions.
  5. We LOVE meetings.
  6. We try to do way too much.
  7. We try to be something we’re not.
  8. We spend too much time looking at other churches.
  9. We worry about people leaving.
  10. We don’t feel trusted.

  1. 你能做的,比你想像中少。
  2. 若你有甚麼鴻圖大計,還是請你盡早收回,並相信我:對教會來說,這會是件好事。
  3. 你的首要任務是獲取會眾的信任。
  4. 很多時候,這等於說,你要願意比其他人,多走一里路。
  5. 越強調自己和別人(會眾 / 牧者)觀念上的差別,越難獲得信任。
  6. 別人的意見就算多錯(你以為),也要用心的聽。
  7. 你是否有領導能力,在於別人能否在不自覺的情況下,而非會議擂台上,給你改變(或說「擊倒」)。
  8. 若是以對立的態度推行變革,歷史稱之為「革命」,沒有幾個是成功的。
  9. 這不是有否guts的問題,而是你究竟為了說明自己對、別人錯?還是真的希望教會能有所改變。
  10. 和你視之為「阻住地球轉」的人一樣,你也需要留心聖靈對教會的微聲和帶領。而祂的方式和內容,往往並非如你所料。

  • 正如林一峰話齋,閱讀,也是一種 state of mind。
  • 所以不限文字,還有聲音影像一切雜崩能東西,都在涉獵反思消化乾坤大挪移之列。
  • 看重的只有一個字:Insight


I work at Westside Baptist Church. Of course, that doesn't mean they agree with everything I post or link here. Everything here is my personal opinion and is not read or approved in advance. Consider yourself warned.
