I can see some advantages to community input, but we need to always be sensitive to the prompting of God and remember that what we want, and what God wants are not always the same.

The community 'driven' items can include style of worship, time of service, ministries/ missions, language of service, and topic of messages.

The God 'driven' items should be the content of message (specific passages and how they are handled), prompting of the Holy Spirit, and counseling/ mentoring.

And while there is wisdom in crowds, we need to balance that with the shepherd/ leadership aspect so that while the community has input, the will of God is still accomplished.


Brian--you are a wise man and this is well put. Thanks for the thoughtful comments.
