Councils are meant to help the Church run better. The meaning of “run better” is: congregants can get their questions answered and get things done more easily, information flows more freely, more voices are heard by leadership, more people feel connected to what others are doing and to the church as a whole; and people are more aware of the good things that West Shore is accomplishing in the world.
So often, the emphasis in leadership development is focusing on building skills in individuals. Here, the focus is more on creating an environment that makes the work of leadership easier and more effective.
