What is a Church Staff For?
Consider this proposition: The best kind of staff at a church are not the sort of people who make less work for the members of the church, but rather those who make more… they just have a way of inspiring, leading, focusing and empowering so that people believe in, love, enjoy, and grow from the work of the Gospel. Here at Littleton Christian Church, Kelly Haanen and Jordan Hurst are great examples of this. I just flat out love working alongside these people!
May it be that this rule spreads across the body of Christ in Evangelicalism: Churches, hire people to equip the saints to do the work. There are no "professional" Christians.
