The Concept of Executive Pastors

Dennis McFadden at His Barking Dog talks about the concept of an “Executive Pastor” in an interesting article at his blog (link). I found particularly apt his comments that:

Generally you can determine the statistical probability of a church having an Executive Pastor based on whether the senior pastor has more books by Francis Turretin or George Barna in his personal library. Turretin is a dead giveaway that this is NOT a place where you will find an Executive Pastor.

How true that is! And one could swap in John Owen, Thomas Boston, or Thomas Manton as well.

    “….with Barna” you wonder if it is faith in his way or Faith in His Way?:)
