We’ve noted that a healthy church board, committee, or ministry team exercises Body Life. But, how far do you take that? At what point might building relationships get in the way of fulfilling your agenda?
Two points to consider when weighing agendas versus relationships:
1) Boards, committees, and ministry teams are made up of people who come with personal needs and concerns.
2) Boards, committees, and ministry teams who care for one another tend to cooperate with one another better.
In light of these realities, relational investment could, in the end, benefit the advancement of the group’s agenda.
