7 times you should NOT hire more church staff
from Church Leaders
Not too long ago, you could add staff according to a clear formula. Typically, that meant one full-time minister for every 100 to 200 in worship attendance. Unfortunately, it is no longer best to approach adding staff in a formulaic fashion. Most churches do not add staff according to a programmatic approach. Today, rather than following a strict guideline, the decisions are much more fluid and contextual. I thus offer seven occasions when a church should not hire additional staff.
