Video: Changes in the XP Role

Oh, how the XP job has changed! Over the last decade or two, the role of the Executive Pastor has changed significantly. Once a more business role, the position seems to have developed into something that varies from church to church.

On the following video, Todd Rhoades and Matt Steen discussed how the role has evolved. They talk about the three main types of XP that David Fletcher of XPastor sees (read David’s article here).

How does your church define the role of the XP?

The title “Executive Pastor” covers a pretty broad range of job functions in the church today. According to David Fletcher, the job typically falls into one of three categories:

  • Overseer of Operations
  • The Ministry Strategist
  • The Second-in-Command

In this video, they discuss the evolution of the role, how it functions in the church today, and what churches need in the days to come.
