10 things you don’t want to hear at a church board meeting

December 27, 2008

There used to be a show on tv called Kids Say the Darndest Things. On the show kids said all manner of things that often shocked the audience. The kids spoke with honesty.
In our churches our members can say the darndest things. They speak with honesty. It is so important that we have all our ducks in a row so we don’t get caught without a plan.
Please tell me that you never ever heard any of these comments while conducting a meeting at your church.

1. Pastor, we can’t plan without your vision.

2. Pastor, we have ministry conflicts.

3. Pastor, don’t we need a master calendar?

4. Pastor, shouldn’t we have a plan to help our community?

5. Pastor, do we have to spend all that money sharing the gospel?

6. Pastor, we’re happy with the people we have in this church.

7. Pastor, our previous pastor didn’t do it like that.

8. Pastor, shouldn’t we allow each of our 20 ministries to present in detail all their plans for the next two year?

9. Pastor, do you have a plan or are we just practicing maintenance ministry?

10. Pastor, what are the goals we wish to accomplish for next year?
