The principles that should guide what pastoral staff meetings look like

A Church staff meeting is the opportunity to express and embody the values you want to shape your staff team culture. For our staff team, that means we spend time in the bible and in prayer for our church and each other. We spend time communicating the things going on (not just to inform, but to enthuse and encourage). We spend time on relationships by doing lunch together, and we spend time trying to improve by training and development. We also blow up the staff meeting plans every so often to do walk up as a team, or all do one ministry together.
We do these things in a formal way in “staff meeting” time, because we want these things to be informally part of what goes on throughout the week and throughout the year, and throughout the generations at our church.
