When a minister can't manage
from Managing Your Church
A seminary degree is not an MBA. There are no accounting classes in seminary. Most ministers don’t dream about the process of hiring people or look forward to the annual performance reviews. Policies and procedures often elicit a gag reflex, and the budgeting process is loathsome. In fact, many ministers on church staffs view all these management duties as interferences to what they really want to do, which is to make disciples through the local church. Yet, in many churches, ministers end up becoming managers.
