You’ve got to have both, leading and managing. Both are vital for a healthy congregation and healthy ministry. But if you lack leadership, a void is obvious. What’s the difference between the two? I’ve been thinking about this stuff for a couple of weeks to a month. Brief thoughts here.
I heard these questions somewhere recently and I’ve really been thinking through them. What are the questions that pinpoint the differences between leading and managing?
- A manager asks: “Are we doing the stuff right?”
- A leader asks: “Are we doing the right stuff?”
I’m working out the implications of this…with God’s help.
