Leadership Lessons: Struggling to Develop a Team Mentality 1

In this post and the following three are 4 sets of reasons a church may struggle to develop a team mentality. There are probably plenty more.


1. People holding wrong assumptions about what the church is:

  • Church is meeting to attend rather than common life together
  • Lack of understanding about every member ministry
  • Unbiblical view of fellowship = activity or nice time together
  • Unbiblical view of leaders = activity coordinators
  • Unbiblical view of congregation = consumers or pupils
  • Historical assumptions about relationship between clergy and laity
  • Denominational assumptions or practices that turn leaders into a priesthood
