Explaining the Rules

July 16, 2008 — Leave a comment

I was reading Paul Williams’ article, Could Someone Please Explain the Rules? in this week’s edition of The Christian Standard in which he asks the question: Is there a proper protocol for hiring a staff member from another church?

As the new preacher at a growing church I’m very interested in the answer to this question. We’re already starting the process of hiring more staff, but–with a Kingdom vision–I want us to do it in a way that is God-honoring.

Paul wrote:

There would appear to be no clear rules of engagement when hiring staff. However, if we could reach some kind of accord, it would certainly smooth many a ruffled feather.

So, what’s the answer to Paul’s question? What are the rules we should follow when hiring staff from another church?

I’d love to hear what you all think.
