Lately I've been hearing the worst stories about moronic elders/deacons completely screwing up churches. The underpaid, unappreciated staff who actually does the work of the church gets burned out under the nutty "leadership." Meanwhile, the congregation is left scratching their heads, wondering why the staff has quit and people stop coming to the church.
Yoo hoo, congregations and pastors: here's a wake up call. Lawyers, doctors and other people with money are not necessarily the best candidates for church leadership. Spirit-led people are the best candidates for church leadership!
