I continue to thank the NEXT CHURCH for articles that engage in thoughtful reflection on the future of the church.  For me, there was a lot to think about in this particular article, “Why Church Boards Need to Die” by Bill Habicht posted on June 10, 2014.  It is a major challenge securing and empowering church members willing to think “outside the box” in doing the transformational/entrepreneurial work of the church.  I would think this would be a major challenge in small congregations  where members have to wear a variety of leadership hats.
