I’ve been attending board meetings of an organization whose executive director, rather than delegating work and training others, continues to put on more and more hats. There is no doubt he feels he is doing a good job holding things together. However, from a public perspective the situation is taking on the appearance of an unhealthy one-man-show. Rather than holding things together, things are falling through the cracks. Today’s church is not immune to the one-man-show scenario and many leaders of faith focus on control, rather than on the mission. In the early church the Twelve Apostles understood the importance of the mission, “So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:2-4 NIV).
