Building Church Culture

One Pastor's Thoughts . . .

Leadership Thoughts

In this section . . .

Our best days are in the past.

The pastor and staff are paid Christians.

I'll give what I can.

Membership is a right. Don't talk to me about my commitments.

I am the pastor. I am in charge.

Only the pastor can help me.


I am ordained, you are not.

I come to church for what I can get out of it for myself.

If we say the name of Jesus we may offend someone.

My staff is incompetent.

I must know, and be in control of everything.

We have never done it that way before.

We don't minister to those folks.

Let me tell you my problems.

Don't you challenge my authority.

My name is on the sign, I am the pastor.

Our best days are before us.

Every Christian should be in ministry.

I am committed to the financial success of our church.

Membership is a privilege. I want to take it seriously.

I am the pastor, I am here to serve.

We have a competent staff and lay team that can serve our congregation's needs.

Everyone is valuable in the church.

I am here primarily to help win people to Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the way the truth and the life.

I trust our staff and I allow them to do their work.

In a large church there is so much going on that I can't possibly keep up with it.

Let's try something new.

We accept, love, and hug all kinds of folks.

It is a joy to be alive in God's world.

Come in; help me to become a better pastor.

I must win your trust to become your pastor.
