You need Felons & Millennials on your Staff…Now!
“Artie, where do find such great staff?” I was asked that question by a group of pastors a couple weeks ago. I told them we hire felons, Millennials (20 somethings) and the people no one else would hire. We firmly believe God uses the healed to bring healing.
20 kids come to know Jesus and be baptized in the last—3 Weeks!
The 20-somethings take on any and every project with incredible gusto andÂ creativity. They have a passion for the Kingdom that doesn’t sleep! I can text or call one of them at anytime, and wham! “I’m on it pastor!”
We have an ex-Marine Corp “Gunny,” a retired judge, an ex insurance salesman and a cruise line entertainer! Just to name a few of our Pastors backgrounds. All add such a great mix of diversity and freshness to our church and leadership that can only beÂ contributedÂ to the grace and power of God.
Bottom line, when you are looking to add to your staff or leadership, look and listen where God is moving. It might surprise you that the next “Apostle Paul”, a murderer forgiven of much and who can love much may be in your midst!
Don’t be afraid to use the “broken &Â bruised” they love much and they can impact the community and Kingdom like few others.
