Waiting for a Funeral to Move Forward

This member opposes nearly all proposed changes to help the congregation grow and others have tired of trying to oppose this member.


Congregations need to diversify their leadership and not allow one person or family make all of the decisions. One of my goals at First Lutheran is to diversify the leadership base of the congregation.
