Position Papers Will Save You From “Numbskulls”


Dave Jacobs has a great article today on Position Papers.  I wrote a number of these through the years, but never thought of them as one unified series. 

Dave says:

“Position papers save a lot of time and let you address the individual’s question in a thorough way without taking the time right there and then. When I was pastoring I had position papers on a wide range of controversial subject. Some examples:

  • Women in the ministry
  • The gifts of the Holy Spirit
  • The role of the elder
  • Church government, i.e. how decisions are made here
  • Tithing”

Despite his unfortunate derogatory labeling of people who ask questions, I think he has a really good idea.
