If you remember, Eric is the former vocational pastor (but continuing “pastor”) who voluntarily left his paid church position and is now working in manufacturing.
But, has Eric had a change of heart? I mean, over the last few months he has been writing about “house church.” But, now, he’s supporting and cheerleading for senior pastors?
This is the way his post starts:
I believe the senior pastor of the church is extremely important. He is the focus. He is in charge. He provides both key leadership and direction.
The senior pastor gives the vision for the church, provides all the important teachings for the church, and has the right to unquestioned following of his flock.
I almost stopped reading. But, I’m glad that I didn’t stop. Eric has now convinced me of the importance of the senior pastor. Read it and tell me what you think.
