I was listening to someone on a conference call and they made mention of “Church Superstars”. Do we really have those? I begin to think of my the place I worship hummm. I asked my Pastor friends and they immediately named someone in their congregation.
My question to them afterwards was, what make them stand out? here’s their response.
Superstars always like to be seen or recognized. They let it be known “I’m a big giver’
Superstars like talking about how important their time and life is.
Superstars have known cliques where they always give special mention and rewards their friends however identifying them as a followers or admirers.
Superstars only invite those they think are more important to private events while the
“regular” hear about it later and feel unappreciative.
Superstars make their authority known. Do things without asking and expecting not to be approached.
What ever decisions are made by the Pastor the superstar will give them a personal phone call with their critic being good if for their benefit or negative because their not included. (most common response from Pastors)
They talk to leaders about other members but never offer the truth about their own lives. When they are done with you so is their clique.
As a leader we serve in different capacities of the church Sunday after Sunday lets not be recognized as a Superstar. Speak to everyone by coming early.
Stop trying to have a common relationship with the Pastor and wife. Friends are good Closed Cliques can be intimidating. We must show ourselves friendly to be friendly when we reaching out to bring those to Christ.
And lastly, Superstars stop saying you can be the better person for everything and allow the others gifts to be used, encourage instead of criticize
** A Superstar reading this like I don’t know who she think she talking to… We just Talking Church
