Don Barnett, pastor of Paintsville First United Methodist Church, KY, shares comments on leading from the self on his church website. He sites, and accurately interprets, sections from The Hidden Lives of Congregations on the concept of leadership, including, “myths about leadership.” You can read pastor Barnett’s comments here.
I like that pastor Barnett shares his thoughts on leadership on his church website. Clergy often forget that educating their congregations on their understanding of basic beliefs, concepts, and theology in an important part of congregational development. Finding different venues to communicate those perspectives is good practice. Communicating them often is necessary.
