Board Qualifications (Part II)
This week I’m addressing the importance of selecting the right leaders for a board or church. Yesterday, we discussed the qualities to avoid, but the rest of the week we’ll highlight the admirable traits that the Apostle Paul recommends in an overseer.
In Titus 1:8, Paul said about overseers, “Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.”
The Greek for hospitable means fond of guests or, a lover of people. A board member or elder is an ambassador for the organization.
If they easily offend others or don’t like people, they will not be a good ambassador. When seeking a new board member find a good ambassador. They may not always be extroverted, but they do need to love people.
