By Andrew Osborne | Sep 25, 2018 12:30:00 PM

In a perfect world, our churches would have all the financial means to employ ginormous staffs who can serve both the people in our congregations and the communities around us. We’d have people hired to teach Bible studies geared specifically to certain age groups.

But as we all know, the world isn’t perfect, and our churches can’t always afford to hire people to fill each role we need to do the ministry God has called us to do.

How to Best Deal with Criticism

By Rev. Daniel Ross | Dec 8, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Someone once told me that being a church worker is like living in a fish bowl. What they forgot to mention was that sometimes people threw rocks at the bowl.
