Many churches are currently rethinking their models of governance and the practices that flow from these. I enjoy opportunities to work with local churches on principles and practices of governance and it was fun to do this today with a church in Brisbane.
We looked at a model I call the Tear-drop and spent some time examining five developmental practices around this. Following this we looked at how to review a senior pastor and also a congregational conflict resolution policy.
Some of these resources are available on my Katartizo weblog.
