What is the Congregation's Job Description?

When a church is looking for a pastor, the leaders usually have a written job description with very clear expectations—and they require the pastor to sign-off on the job description. Such a process makes it very clear what the congregation expects from the pastor.

Fair enough.

But what about the congregation's job description?

How can we be so clear on what we expect from a pastor and so clueless about what God expects from us concerning our pastor(s).

Great news! You don't have be uniformed about what God expects from you concerning your pastor(s).
