Writing for the Out of Ur blog, David Fitch writes about why we should abandon the "Senior Pastor" model in our churches. His reasons are:
1. Because it doesn't make sense to build a church around a personality.
2. Because there are no supermen(or women).
3. Because isolated pastors can get tunnel vision.
I tend to agree with what he has written here. In most churches, it's an impossible job description and really makes no sense Biblically. (Read this book if you don't agree with that statement)Read his whole post here.
