Organizational Coach Dr. Ken Thiessen talks about "over-functioning and under-functioning" — another of the five unhealthy ways anxiety manifests itself in congregations and Christian ministries. Who are the "over-functioners" and "under-functioners"? In your ministry context or in your congregation, is there somebody who always picks up the ball? These people oftentimes volunteer for everything. They're the backbone of ministry organizations and churches, because guess what? Everybody knows that John is going to step forward and volunteer. A lot of times, John volunteers for stuff that he's not necessarily gifted at. God hasn't called him to do that, but if I'm sitting on the sidelines, I don't have to worry things, because I just know that John is going to pick it up.It is important to understand how anxiety dominates much of the unhealthy decision making processes and broken relationships within faith-based ministries and congregations. The QT4CM podcast is a peer knowledge sharing initiative for personal and professional development of Christian ministry workers. Quick Tips for Christian Ministry is produced with the support of The Great Commission Foundation… to benefit those who serve in the Name of Christ.
