Leadership Lessons: Struggling to Develop a Team Mentality 3

A third list of reasons why a church may struggle to develop a team mentality:


3. Individual's Reasons

Not realising they have spiritual gifts

Not realising they are meant to actively contribute

Thinking that only extreme talent is welcome – like in a sports team

Not motivated, not thrilled with God or church

"I go for what I get out of it" mentality

Spiritual immaturity and selfishness

Want things to happen, but want someone else to take responsibility: “you should do this”. (I think of a church that was exploring the possibility of church planting. It surveryed the congregation and discovered one portion of its demographic saying "do whatever you like as long as it doesn't disrupt my Sunday worship experience and I don't personally have to be involved.")
