Every healthy staff should be able to offer constructive criticize to other members, including the lead pastor, with that little amount of concern.
A healthy church fosters an atmosphere in which people feel free to express their ideas openly – especially at the leadership level.
A church staff that never criticizes or corrects their lead pastor is not healthy. Maybe they’re afraid to be honest. Maybe they lack creativity. Either way, without criticism, there’s information you need to know that you’re not being told. And that hurts everyone.
A pastor who places themselves above criticism is not a good leader. But even if you say people are allowed to disagree with you, but they never do, something is wrong.
