Tony Steward was recently hired as the Online Community Pastor at LifeChurch.tv. Terry and the team were excited for him to arrive as new staff is a great opportunity to get feedback from a fresh perspective. A new staff member can provide free critical feedback on current processes on the team – free.
I think that it is great that they have hired an online community pastor and commend Tony’s blog to you as well. As to getting feedback from new team members, I think that this is a great practice – both for an internet campus and for any local congregation. It would have to be balanced with getting the new team member on board with standard practices of the team. There is a balance here.
What do you think? Is it more important to gain fresh perspective or to make sure that a team member is on board with standard operating procedures?
