Patrick Lencioni defines a leadership team as a small group group of people who are collectively responsible for achieving results for their organization.
Do our churches by this definition have leadership teams? Do we have a groups that understands themselves to be collectively responsible for achieving results?
I find these questions challenging. They challenge me because I wonder if we could even define what we mean by “results” in many cases. They challenge me because I am full of doubt about my ability to pull together such a leadership team. They challenge me because I sense that as pastor, the ministry of order calls me to do what I most doubt my ability to do.
