1 Sorting Out the Roles of Board and Staff

2 Peter Drucker Drucker's books, his scholarly and popular articles explored how humans are organized across the business, government and the nonprofit sectors of society.

3 Peter Drucker He is one of the best- known and most widely influential thinkers and writers on the subject of management theory and practice. His writings predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century,

4 Peter Drucker …including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning.

5 The four hardest jobs in America according to Peter Drucker : President of the United States President of a University C.E.O. of a Hospital Pastor of a large church

6 What do these four jobs have in common that makes them so difficult?

7 Each of these leaders serve a diverse constituency with competing demands and expectations.

8 The existence of many competing demands and expectations underscores the necessity of a clearly defined sense of purpose. IT CANNOT BE EMPHASIZED TOO STRONGLY The leader of a local church must be CLEAR about the purpose and God’s specific calling for the local church.

9 One biographer states that President Ronald Reagan had two objectives so clearly defined that they could be written on the back of a business card: DEFEAT COMMUNISM LOWER TAXES

10 Because the existence of many competing demands and expectations underscores the necessity of a clearly defined sense of purpose. This is where the central board is to work most closely with the lead pastor of the church.

11 Every local church should periodically revisit and clarify the sense of purpose in ministry. What is God calling us to do in this community? These clear statements are called ENDS

12 Furthermore, the central board of every church should be diligent in identifying the next critical success factor or imperative that must be addressed to move the ministry forward. “What is it that seems to be an obstacle or problem that can obstruct our progress?”

13 STRATEGY = the ultimate objective TACTICAL = specific battles that must be won to achieve the ultimate objective LOGISTICAL = supplying the physical needs of the army fighting the battle GOVERNANCE = accountability of the leader(s) to achieve the ultimate objective

15 PURPOSE PURPOSE= the ultimate objective TACTICS TACTICS= specific victories that will enable us to achieve the ultimate objective LOGISTICAL LOGISTICAL = supplying the physical and organizational needs of the volunteers GOVERNANCE GOVERNANCE = the Board holding the lead pastor accountable to fulfill the objective
