Insight 296: FaithSoaring Churches Have Clear Communication on Staff Issues

Congregations seeking to transform, like every congregation, will inevitably have some personnel issues regarding staff. It may even be that a staff person needs to be disciplined, if not terminated. When this unfortunate situation happens, those persons in charge of dealing with staff issues should be aware of how they handle the staff situation. What they communicate about the staff issue will impact trust in the congregation.

Therefore, their communication is clear, honest, and affirming at every point possible. At the same time they know there are often matters of confidentiality and good, legal personnel procedures that may complicate their communication.
