Do you have Brett Favre on your ministry team?
Take this quick self-examination to find out:
- Do you have a team member who always leaves you uncertain of their commitment?
- Do you have a team member who, if asked to step down from their role, would move on to any church that would take them on their team?
- Do you have a team member who is still thinks that the methods they used in 1997 are still your best options?
Now, I’ll admit, I have a soft spot in my heart for Brett Favre. Watching him take the field and rock the defense of the Raiders after his dad’s passing in 2003 was one of the greatest sports moments I’ve seen in my lifetime. I don’t change the channel or fast forward the TiVo when commercials w/ Brett come on. Brett has overcome so many challenges in his life that he’s always the easy guy to root for.
But, the Brett Favres of the church world aren’t always the best teammates. Brett Favres are not always the guy/gal you should build a team around. As a coach, Brett Favres may be at a point in their career where they might not listen to your direction.
This week, WestCoastCM will take a look at what to do if you find out you have a Brett Favre on your team.
