Insight 297: FaithSoaring Churches Simplify the Management Structure
Congregations seeking to transform are regularly simplifying their management systems that include their committee structure, decision making processes, and governance guidelines. They realize they only need to have enough management to do things decently and in order, and to make sure they fulfill the core obligations they have to their governance documents. Any more becomes controlling.
They do not feel the need to keep committees, decision-making processes, and governance guidelines in place because the congregation has always done it this way, or certain people feel entitled to certain positions and want to claim their value and worth from those positions.
