Nepotism and the Church

I’ve seen too many instances of nepotism in the local congregation to believe that it is a good thing. No, I am not saying that families cannot help, but at some point, one has to realize that the dangers inherent to such a system outweigh their benefits –

A husband-wife team ministering together, doing a lot of the heavy lifting in a small church can be a beautiful thing. It can model a healthy marriage and the joy that comes from serving together. It can go terribly wrong when the relationship puts a stranglehold on ministry growth, for example, a pastor’s wife who runs the women’s ministry with an iron fist in order to ensure her position is never challenged. Who is there to remove the pastor’s wife from her role if she doesn’t do a good job?
