The words ‘fun’ and ‘church staff’ often seem more like oxymorons than necessary partners. In fact, even as I write this, I just finished a staff meeting. Fun is not the word I would use to describe it.
And perhaps rightly so.
Church staffs need structured, time-bounded meetings to discuss and critically engage with the necessary issues pertinent to ministry. Various seasons in the year call for team members to discuss hard conversations, make tough decisions, disagree with one another, and maintain deadlines. Not fun things to do, but very necessary things to do. The health and growth of every ministry organization depends on these kinds of meetings.
