Do You Love Your Church Job (or Hate it?)

Discover why your attitude towards your ministry career matters and how choosing the right mindset can lead to a fulfilling and impactful church staff role in this insightful blog post.

Love Hate Church Job

Examining Your Attitude Towards Your Ministry Career: Love It or Hate It?

Today, let's dive into a critical, oftentimes hard-to-address topic so prevalent within the realm of church staff. Reflect for a moment: are you in love with your church job, or do you genuinely despise it?

When it comes to your approach towards your church staff position, imagine two extremes. On the one hand, you may be in the zone where you do everything right: arriving on time, meeting expectations, staying on budget, and exhibiting hard work and loyalty. On the other hand, you may be in a space where you constantly challenge the status quo, asking what more you could be doing. This attitude breeds an intense desire to create a lasting legacy and make a significant impact on people's lives.

Choosing the Right Attitude for a Healthy Church Staff

Reflection is crucial. As church leaders, we need to question which approach resonates with us more and whether it aligns with what we expect from our staff.

Through decades of experience, I've come to believe that top-notch church leaders primarily belong to the second group. The notion of doing more than asked, learning, and leaving a legacy predominantly fuels their ministry career.

It's not to suggest that the first approach is terrible — I genuinely appreciate those elements too. But, to keep a healthy church culture pulsating, leaders must consistently engage in constructive introspection and exude infectious enthusiasm for their work.

Eternal Differences: It Matters How You Feel Today

Regardless of the role you play on your church staff, what you feel about your church job today truly matters. It impacts not only your work performance but the overall health of your church.

If you're in a place where you feel like you're merely going through the motions every day at work, something needs to change. It's time to seek a place where you can utilize all your talents to serve God effectively.
