Pastors and staff who feel entitled to their role with a particular congregation are not likely to empower vision.
Entitlement is dicey. Different things are seen in different situations as comprising entitlement. An entitlement mentality is more prolific than many people acknowledge.
Entitlement is present among both laypersons and clergy. When pastors and church staff persons develop an entitlement mentality about their role they defend it, fight for it, and resist any change in it.
If pastors and staff feel entitled to their job, and believe nothing can take it away from them, they have little urgency to help cast and fulfill passionate, empowering vision for the future of their congregation. Consequently, they suffer, the congregation suffers, and a small part of God’s Kingdom suffers.
