Recruiting From Inside or Outside the Organization

There’s a debate that goes on in leadership circles about hiring. Should we hire from within the organization or look for individuals beyond the organization? I want to tell you that this question is flawed. It implies that you must make a choice. Let me give you some ideas to think about.


Pastoral vs Administrative

When you are administrative you understand that you are not running a charity. When you are a pastor you understand… yes you are. And as the church grows there are a lot of people that, in the early phases of church growth, they think that growing a large church is the same as a small church, it just has more people and more revenue. That is far from the truth. Here is how I have experienced it.
