I’ve spoken quite a bit lately about my burden for (a) decentralized leadership and (b) every member ministry. Both are core values at Tri-County Bible Church, which I’m privileged to pastor. The concept is thoroughly biblical. However, sometimes there’s a “disconnect” between what we believe to be right and what actually takes place. Sometimes the implementation of a right philosophy is challenging. So…
Whether you’re a pastor or not, please help the other readers of MTC by chiming in: What are some practical things churches, pastors, and members can do to encourage decentralized leadership and every member ministry? What hinders these things?
Please explain, and be as specific as possible. Looking forward to reading your thoughts. Thanks!
