Authority Over The Church

Is it biblical for the pastor of a church to have complete control of the hiring and firing of the church staff?....or Should the staff be appointed by the elders/deacons of a church?.....or Should this be an issue that is decided by the voting of the church body?.....Does the church body have the right to have input on this?

The pastor should have no input. This matter is best left to the board of directors.

Now, what happens when a director should be hired/fired? Hopefully there is something in the church's charter to control this. If not, the board should create an independent committee to make a recommendation.

Basically, the pastor should be held in the highest honor and rise above any petty political situation. Keep the pastor out of it.

Sounds like Mandrake needs to change churches.

You're confusing the religious guidance of the soul with the secular reality of operating an organization. The Bible has nothing to do with it. If the pastor cannot work effectively with his or her staff, then either the staff or the pastor has to go. I've seen and heard a lot of very effective secretaries and administrative assistants; not so many effective pastors.
