I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. This article is part of my “Sunday 101″ series and is called “Sunday 101: What about pastors?”
In Scripture, it is clear that leaders are important for the life and development of the church – not necessary, but important. But, what we typically see today in churches concerning leadership is a far cry from what we read in Scripture.
Here is the start of my article:
Churches in Raleigh (and around the Western world, actually) are often known according to their senior pastor. In fact, some people describe a church as “Pastor So-and-So’s” church. But, in Scripture, we do not find that same kind of association. In fact, in Scripture, we do not find the idea of a single pastor, much less a senior pastor, being in charge of a church.
