The thought of firing someone in Ministry can often make you feel sick to your stomach.
Outside of ‘moral failures’ we often struggle to see why someone
should be released from what they are called to do.
Most Pastors struggle with this because they never pastor a Church big enough to do this!
Yet over summer I learnt this amazing thing…
‘Those who start with you; can’t always finish with you!’ – Gary Grogan
As time goes on our ministries should develop and grow.
Often ministries can outgrow the maximum potential gifting of their leaders.
There is no shame in this but I have learnt that a decision is needed.
You get rid of the leader or hold onto them, either way;
‘You either hurt the leader, or you hurt the ministry.’ – Ricky Spindler
You do it right, you transition them well. You shower love on them & thank them.
But if you make the right call then a good leader, with time, will recognize the right decision.
