Pastoral Staff Evaluation Structure (audio post)

It can be a difficult thing to evaluate pastoral staff. On the one hand, we don’t want to solely evaluate our staff on the basis of their spirituality (they’re not monks). On the other hand, we don’t want to evaluate them solely on their management skills either (they’re not CEOs).
Once you consider the fact that–unlike everybody else–pastors are also part of the community they’re trying to lead, it becomes tricky to ascertain where their participation ends and their responsibilities begin.
Here’s some thoughts on how we evaluate our pastoral staff at The Winds, and why.
Dr. David McDonald is the teaching pastor at Westwinds Community Church in Jackson, MI. The church, widely considered among the most innovative in America, has been featured on CNN.com and in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and Time Magazine. David weaves deep theological truths with sharp social analysis and peculiar observations on pop culture. He lives in Jackson with his wife, Carmel, and their two kids.
