A Pastor needs to be reachable. You need to know your people and they need to know that you are there for them. at one time it meant that they had access to your office and your work number. But the world has changed. For those who grew up in the internet generation; the preferred method of initial communication is electronically. I said “initial” because they will want to sit down with you still but they won’t initiate it with a phone call. DO NOT use Facebook to post that you just had a sandwich or that you think Justin Bieber is cool. See it as a chance to hang out with your congregation where they like to congregate the most.
I have heard way too many criticisms of church staffs that are out of touch and that are not engaging in the daily questions that church members might have. Let’s work to fix that and be better servants of our Lord Jesus who cared for his sheep by meeting them where they were at.
