One massive hiring mistake that churches repeatedly make is hiring a person primarily because they are right in front of you. I get it. The person has been a faithful volunteer. They love your church. You know them well. They really want the job. Their character is impeccable.
What could go wrong?
The answer is a lot can go wrong and likely will go wrong because you made the fatal mistake of hiring a person simply because they were in front of you.
Adding the wrong person to your team can be costly and destructive, especially in a church context. A bad hire can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, ruin morale, cause families to leave, split churches, and even end churches. None of those things are exaggerations. We have personally seen them all happen because of poor hiring decisions.
