    I've held every position in churches except that of pastor. My ministry, though, is in singing and leading the singing.

    I'm not sure. On some occasions, maybe, simply because I'm married to the pastor.

    In some respects, maybe. I co-teach the singles Sunday school class. Maybe that makes me a leader or just a worker (hopefully faithful worker). I prefer the idea of a faithful worker since I don't like to think of myself as a leader. The very idea scares me.

    Hmmm - not sure but probably? Mostly by the fact that my hubby is one of the pastors so I'm part of the leadership "team"? I also help lead stuff for the women and homeschool group. So I'm a "leader" but certainly not one of the important leaders (nor do I lead men. ;) )

    I guess so. I'm the Pastor (and Worship Leader, and Choir Director, and Youth Worker), I can't wait until we can hire another staff member!

    Coastal North Carolina??? Hmmm - do you have water nearby where we could sail? Shall I send DH's resume?? ;) Although that worship leader thing could be a bit of a tug of war. ;)

    I have no leadership in my church, but someday I would like to teach.

    God has a lot more to teach me before I'm ready for that, though.

    (I'm sure you all already know that! :laugh: )

    I am the leader on the first wednesday night of every month, because that is pot-luck night.

    I am the leader as far as getting in line, so I guess it is convenient for the pastor to ask me to ask for the blessing.

    I have never thought of this before this post was put up, but yeah, that makes me a leader!!!!!!!!!!
