Elders as a "Board of Directors?"

10 March 2006

I guess I just don’t get it these days. Since when did the primary function of elders become “to meet and make decisions,” with a secondary function of “setting congregational policy?” Ugh. I’m having one of those moments. Ezekiel (see Chapter 34) didn’t excoriate the elders of Israel for being “insufficiently nimble in their administration” or “insufficiently responsive to the directives of the CEO, aka the ‘senior pastor.'” But that’s what we’re left with these days, or so it seems in the modern church that aspires to megachurch status.

*sigh*
