Consultants

This post at MMI this morning brought up a thought that I have had lately: I would NEVER bring in a church consultant that is not currently serving in a local church somewhere. I know that church consultants have to obviously be gone a lot of Sundays, but when they are at home, they should be active in their local church. Otherwise, they are just blowing smoke.

Hi Chris - I've found that the best consultants are actually retired pastors who have seen it all! When they have both ministry and consulting experience, they have a lot more to offer.
