Church is to bring in the lost, to save souls. If you're a believer and come to a church to seek what it can do for you, instead of what you can do for the church, then your in it to be served and not to serve. It's not about you and what you want, it's about the Kingdom and glorifying God. Do your part to help not to run because you don't feel good about the church. True Christians seek God in Spirit and in Truth, all others are seeking a savior and need help getting to there destiny. Help to do the vision, not criticise others for not doing it the way you want. We are one body with different parts moving towards the same purpose. Salvation!!

Thanks for this helpful reminder. I'm finding that I favor moving people into ministry much earlier in the process because the most rapid spiritual growth (moving toward Christlikeness) occurs when people are engaged in service. "Maturity" isn't about information, it's about character transformation. Although character transformation is a slippery, hard to pin down process, it involves many domains working at the same time: gaining information (data), synthesizing information (knowledge), applying information to real life (wisdom). These all require teaching, study, mentoring and serving.

While I understand the title after reading the article, my first thought upon seeing the image and title was "No. Leaders should be letting the Holy Spirit drive, instead of going where they think God wants them to go." And while we may not need any "backseat driver" leaders, what if we did let the Holy Spirit take the wheel?
