Most church conflict is a conflict over metaphors – images that capture the expectations that people have for the church. Good church leadership requires identifying, assessing, and sometimes replacing the metaphors that govern the vision of the church.
Church, we can buy gear all we want, but volunteers are the life-blood of our ministry. To keep our volunteer culture healthy, make sure you are leading your volunteers technically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Call it whatever you’d like, but it’s a good idea to have a space where your volunteers hang out together on Sunday’s. A place where conversation happens, fun happens, laughter happens, community happens.
