Have you ever left your church because of another staff member?

This article’s title caught my attention:

“Employees leave managers, not companies.”

I wondered if the same was true with churches and pastors.

Think back… most of us have served local churches in positions other than the senior pastor position (even if you’re a senior pastor now).

Have you ever left a church’s employment because of the pastor?

Or was it because of the church in general?

(Either way, I bet you told everyone that God was ‘calling you elsewhere’).  🙂

I’d love to hear your story.  Please leave a comment below.

    I am a pastor. I have left 2 churches because of this problem. The first was because of the senior pastor. The second was because of the deacon board. Of course, there were other factors involved in the situations. But, in each case, I was an associate pastor who could not directly address the issues and could no longer compromise my convictions. It was never about the people in the congregation or lack of ministry (job) fulfillment or low pay or long hours or anything like that. It was because of the environment created and sustained by those who were “in charge” and were unwilling to listen to the opinions or convictions of others.
