One thought on “Church Governance Must Improve – It Starts at the Top

  1. In fact, there are many unbiblical ways in which church organization is “done” today, ways that often are contrary to the design of God! The last couple of years, our eyes have been opened to the political nature that flows down from a CEO/President-type structure that places a fallible man “at the top” (as THE pastor) as a boss who hires and fires (particularly when a church operates something such as a Christian school). Such is NOT how God intended His church to operate. The Head of the church is Jesus Christ, and there are multiple leaders within a given local congregation, as is shown in Acts 20:17 when the apostle Paul called for the “elders” (plural) of “the church” (singular) and that local church was a city, Ephesus. When there is a solo individual answerable only to himself, or herself in certain congregations, we have a recipe for abuse in many different areas, not just in areas of a sexual nature. The business model of the world’s system, when applied to and utilized in churches, provides potential for all kinds of evil “behind closed doors.” Such is travesty. We must re-envision how we “do” church, and make it truly Biblical!
