I also had the privilege of interviewing the new Youth Worker for Upminster Baptist Church. Looking forward to working with him in on a number of ideas (assuming the appointment is ratified by the church members). This will be a first for me, to have another person for whom I'll be taking some degree of management responsibility.
I certainly don't think that church should be run like a business, so it will be a challenge to develop accountability and management that reflects kingdom principles more that blue chip principles. I might have to read Jim Collins again!
