At Calvary Fellowship, we operate from the position that God calls a man (The Senior Pastor) to lead the church under the Holy Spirit's direction. As we see with Moses leading the people from Egypt to the land of promise, he was the leader as he followed where God was leading.
Because the Senior Pastor can't do it all, Assistant Pastors and other leaders are raised up to help carry the load of ministry. Getting to the question at hand, the board of directors at Calvary Fellowship consists of outside pastors who assist me in making the organizational and financial decisions that need to be made.
That would involve things like:
– Approving the annual budget
– Purchasing property
– Finding a new Senior Pastor should something happen to me
So the board deals with the big financial decisions and the staff take care of the ministry and the day to day administration.
