I have been in church ministry for over four years and during my time serving with the body, I have met and worked with many different types of people! It’s been such a pleasure to witness the beauty and strength of diversity in the gifting and personalities in the Lord’s house. To see so many different people come together to further the Great Commission has been so wonderful and I am humbled that I get to be a part of something bigger than myself.
As Christians, our body-wide mission is to go out into all the nations and make disciples of all people! While I have never personally planted a church, both my husband and I have served in them on the ground level. We’ve seen both the successes and the downfalls, and almost always, both of them have depended on the types of people serving on the church staff.
Regardless of the types of people on staff, it’s important that each person have the true desire to serve others. Serving, after all, is at the heart of the Body of Christ! Where you find people with servant’s hearts, you will find a humility that makes it possible for the Lord to move and have His way within the community.
Here are 10 Type of People Every Church Staff Needs. This isn’t an exhaustive list, but I believe it’s a good start. If you are looking to start a church, or you are looking to build your church’s staff, I hope this list blesses and encourages you to pray for these individuals to be added to your staff, if they aren’t already a part of it!
