About Board Meetings

While serving in the pastorate for many years, I sat in many, many board meetings. Some of them were exciting, others somewhat depressing. As I reflect back on all those years of leading boards, I have learned a few things that I pass along to you:
  • Never enter a meeting without covering it in prayer.
  • Be in constant communication with your board in order to sell your vision in less official settings.
  • Be willing to compromise on some things. It is not important for you to win on every issue.
  • Stay on topic. So many meetings disintegrate when they are allowed to stray off issue.
  • When controversy exists in a meeting, be free to ask, “I this discussion God-honoring; are our attitudes Christ-like?” Don’t hesitate to stop in the middle of an issue to pray.
  • Treat every member and their contribution with respect.
  • Make sure each member has ample information to make intelligent decisions.
  • Remember it’s God’s ministry, not yours; His battle, not yours; His victory, not yours. Go forward!
“For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure” (Proverbs 11:14).
