Sometime back, Perry Noble posted an entry entitled “Four Types of Staff Members“. It reminded me of a breakfast chat I had with one of my mentors and previous church pastor along the same issues, as I was praying through serving in my church.

He shared that there are 4 types of staff:

  • Dysfunctional
  • Developmental
  • Deployable
  • Dynamic

He also reminded me of what we focus on developing in ourselves:

  • Status (no)
  • Stature (no)
  • Substance (yes)

Lastly, he challenged me to live a life and serve in ministry with a sense of:

  • Destiny
  • Desperation
  • Distinctiveness

Thank you, Ps Tony, for your timely and lasting words of wisdom.
