Model de Statut creat de a inlocui sistemul piramidal de conducere din Biserici(2)

Sa continuam incursiunea noastra prin acest model de Statut. Nick aduce in discutie nevoia cronica de a avea in Biserici  „checks and balances” adica controluri reciproce si balantarea puterii. Prin sistemul piramidal in care unul singur este in varf si care a ajuns acolo urcandu-se pe „spinarea altora” este foarte greu sa verifici sau sa controlezi activitatea si viata „bosului, …pardon,  slujitorului. Prin balantarea puterii de decizie la nivel de conducere se ajunge la situatia in care nici una din persoane nu acumuleaza prea multa putere si se face o limitare reciproca. Este imperios necesar sa se poata da socoteala la orice nivel de conducere din Biserica. Conducera Bisericii este chemata sa fie dinamica dar si transparenta.

„…These Bylaws make a real effort to mitigate some of the weaknesses inherent to our human nature by providing checks and balances, by trying to avoid the conflict of interest, by dividing the tasks and assigning different people to do things, by abiding by Robert’s parliamentary rules. Show me a church run by a single person with an legalistic iron fist I will show you a dysfunctional church.

The nomination committee is a good way to sort out the candidates and provide objectivity to the election process.

Although far from being perfect, these Bylaws represent a great improvement, a workable and well rounded document, setting a new standard to be applied to our churches. By design it weeds out the opportunists, the insincere while providing the framework and opening the stage for the truly passionate to serve our Lord…”

Model de Statut creat de a inlocui sistemul piramidal de conducere din Biserici(1)

Asa cum mentionam in articolul  O noua structura de conducere a Bisericii ca am primit de la Nick Rosioru un model nou conducere care este destinat sa faca o  schimbare fundamentala, o regindire daca vreti,  a structurii de conducere in Biserici.  Ii multumesc lui Nick si pe aceasta cale pentru efortul depus dar si pentru alternativa care o aduce la sistemul existent in multe Biserici Penticostale, ca sa nu zic majoritatea covarsitoare, sistem mostenit din perioada comunista . Autoritatile  din vremea aceea prefera sa lucreze cu o singura persoana, care de regula era pastorul principal, ca sa  controleze Bisericile. Au facut-o cu succes prin sistemul piramidal implementat si prin atribuirea de puteri sporite pastorilor care ajungeau sa controleze „tot ce misca” in Biserica. Devenisera un fel de sefi de partid de neatins. Intre timp s-au adaptat la „economia de piata” si au devenit un fel de patroni.

A venit timpul in care sa consientizam faptul ca trebuie sa ne aliniem cu Scriptura si realitatilor in care traim. Este nevoie de balantarea puterii in Biserici. Nu poti sa lasi toata puterea unui om vremelnic. Ispita este prea mare. Toti gresim si de accea avem nevoie de cineva la care sa dam socoteala, de cineva care sa ne echilibreze balanta. Asa este in familie, unde sotul da socoteala sotiei si invers. La fel trebuie sa fie si in Biserica, o alta institutie creata de Dumnezeu.

Am sa citez aici ceea ce scria Nick despre aceasta si solutiile oferite de el:

„These bylaws are designed to bring clarity and a sense of balance to the church organizational structure, outlining a clear chain of command. By eliminating ambiguity, the church becomes more effective in fulfilling its goal. It is important to have the right person in the right place. The Senior pastor is removed from top executive position so he can focus on his calling and dedicate himself to studying the word and preparing the sermons. It is healthy and biblical to have a Board of Elders in charge instead of a single person (Senior pastor) which usually the case in many churches. The Board of Elders will not micromanage, but rather set goals, plan, coordinate and oversee – delegating other departments to run the day-to-day operation.

One of the biggest challenges in the church or any organization is the danger of becoming embroiled in politics where I rub your back you rub my back. Or the danger of one person accumulating too much power and then using that to consolidate his position – usurpation of power. Or the danger of having unruly and emotionally charged meetings where brothers end up yelling and insulting each other instead of constructively focusing on the issues. Or the danger of nepotism where some are propped up and promoted in positions they should not be in …”
