Toxic Ministry Mindsets

Share This Post

A healthy church starts with a healthy staff. Are your staff members supportive of each another? Do they view other ministries as threats to their own? Do they have a shared vision? If these aspects of a healthy culture are missing, it could have massive repercussions on your staff and church. Consider these three toxic mindsets as ones to look out for:


Ministry is a stepping stone to greater things

People just need to hear me preach

My pastor is my leverage for future opportunities

All of my haters are going to see me shine

I can’t wait for my opportunity
