Recently Nancy Beach did a post about herself and her husband leading a service together.
It got me thinking. I decided to post my comment on her blog to my blog and see what others thought:
I have been doing a lot of thinking about leadership as a couple. What happens in a situation where your church is a lot smaller - like a membership of 115, both have the gift of leadership (at least one being a remunerated pastor)and both feel called to be part of the strategic leadership of the church. Possible? Impossible?
Do the sparks have the potential to have harmful effects on the marriage or the church or both? Should one partner step back...how would this type of situation be resolved?
I have been told that both being on the strategic leadership team would be detrimental to the marriage and that the situation should be avoided. I would love to hear your view.
