4 Indispensable Qualities of a Staff Pastor

No job is ever secure in ministry. In fact, just two short years ago I  found that my position was on the cutting board due to major cutbacks in my local church. Since that time I've tried to lead as best I could from the second chair and serve my team to the best of my ability.  The last few years have definitely stretched me and have made me a better leader.  But it's called me to question (and also put me on the search to find the answers) for what churches really need as they go through difficult seasons as an organization. 

When churches are making decisions to hire (or fire) staff, particularly in this economy, I believe they are looking (or should be looking) at qualities beyond a specific gifting or skill set. They must look for indispensable qualities, indicative of a staff member that can thrive in whatever season you are in as a church.  So I've come up with a list of 4 indispensable qualities every staff pastor should have.  And yes, as a current staff pastor, I also realize I am holding myself accountable to these 4 qualities as a leader...  [You are subscribed to the old blog.
