The 10 Biggest Small Mistakes Churches Make – “Let the Unicorn Go”

Thanks to Zach Blaisdell for posing this question: "What about churches that can find the right candidate but don't want to spend the money?" This installment of this blog series talks about letting a relatively small amount of money cause a church to pass on a quality ministerial candidate. This is obviously a delicate subject…but a really important one when the rubber meets the road. Apply your own tact. I stayed blunt to keep the vlog to 4 minutes.

Dr. Tim Spivey is Lead Planter of New Vintage Church in San Diego, California. He is the author of numerous articles and one book, "Jesus: The Powerful Servant." A sought after speaker for events, Tim also serves as Adjunct Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University. Tim serves as a church consultant, and his writings are featured on ChurchLeaders.com, Church Executive magazine, Faith Village, Sermon Central, and Giving Rocket.

  1. Thank you for the shout out Tim. And for addressing the topic. If churches find a great candidate; especially one they like and the candidate likes them and wants to go there; I hope that a good resolution in salary price can be reached. And that price of salary would never be an excuse for not hiring someone who would otherwise be a great fit in the congregation and on its ministry staff.
    I read several posts and watched your video of the Zoe team getting ready to lead worship also. Great posts! Keep em coming buddy :}
    I hope and pray you, your wife, and children are all healthy and well. God bless you, your family, and the work y’all are doing at NCCC :}

    PS. I hope and pray the Pepperdine Lectures went well. I’m making it a personal goal to attend the Pepperdine Bible Lectures at some point in the future. Be blessed :}
