I meet my pastor’s every week, on Zoom as we live so far away from each other. I have a loose structure for these meetings.
- THE POSITIVE. Always start with the positive, either I tell them something positive – we have paid this conference in full, we are ready for this, we are planting a new church, God said this to me, or I let the pastors tell me the positives of the weekend – people who got saved, new people, healings, people growing and stepping out.
- THE FUTURE. We need to inspire people to look forward. Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day work of ministry we forget we as a fellowship of churches are going somewhere. We need to keep casting vision of the future, and let people know where we are going. It helps inspire people and also a little intimidation to make them realize if we are growing they need to grow too (in a good way)
- THE CONTENT. I don’t do much in the way of this or that, in these meetings i am normally reactive. Someone will suggest they have a problem, and I and often the others in the team will give advice on how to handle that problem.
- FINALLY, ADMIN THINGS. We need to make sure people know what they need to know!
These meetings often last two hours or more because we are also fellowshipping, joking, learning about each other, finding out we often face the same problems. If you make sure these four things are there, with a healthy dose of fellowship then you will have good leadership meetings.
