I heard a pastor I worked for say this once about very good people. They had gently challenged his control issues. When I talked to the same pastor a year later about the same issue, my contract was terminated without my knowledge. Another pastor I worked for, when I suggested he was controlling, physically poked me in the chest and told me I needed to be sent away, along with my wife, for therapy. I spoke with another leader I worked for as a pastor about issues I had with his style and he fired me. Control! I've been accused of this a couple of times. But for those who know me best, they know I err in the other direction. I have most often been accused of showing a lack of leadership. This is the problem: how to exercise just enough authority to keep the people's respect and control them, but not exercising too much authority so as to lose their respect and turn them off. Is this the balancing act most leaders are performing? I'm a pastor to the pastorless. Email me and we can arrange some time together: haywardart at gmail dot com (read more…)
