Pastor, Do You Exercise Too Much or Too Little Authority?

I've just posted the second article in our series on Pastor Terminations. We are counting down the top five reasons they happen.

Bob Sheffield says church leaders and members may think that the pastor has a leadership style that seeks to have everything his way. In some instances, this is more reality than perception. Bob says that we pastors walk a fine line between exercising too little and too much leadership authority.

In this case, the number four reason for pastor termination is that "The Pastor's Leadership Style Is Too Strong."

Read five reasons your leadership style may be perceived this way and five ways to guard against it.
