9Marks eJournal 8, 4 (July-August 2011) on the Pastor and his Staff (Part 1)

The latest 9Marks eJournal is devoted to the topic of ‘the Pastor and his [sic] Staff Part 1’. A pdf of the whole issue is available here.

Here’s a portion from the editorial:

‘Think for a second about how crucial it is for basketball team to work together as a team. Who calls the play? Who sets the pick? Who makes the assist? Who takes the shot? Every member must know his part. And every member knows the team’s success depends on rightly playing that part.

‘The same goes for tennis doubles, and army platoons, and political campaigns, and business partners, and on and on we could multiply the examples. Success depends on every part rightly relating to the other parts.

‘The same lesson applies to church staffs. For the sake of the church and the kingdom, we hope to help church leaders take a few moments to think through staff dynamics. In fact we’re devoting this eJournal and the next one to the pastor and his staff.’
