I have been a layperson for 68 years.  The churches that are full have preachers that are deligent in applying God's word to everyday life.  So on Monday morning I know what to do.  Heavy duty theology without a very practical application puts parishioners asleep and they go places where the application is made.  The other general observation I have made is that grace is often emphasized and dicipleship is often under emphasized.  There needs to be a balance.  Living the christian life involves more than just believing that Jesus is your savior.  In a leadership role, the pastor needs to initially lead the elders.  If the elders are not following, there needs to be a change in stragedy.  The elders and pastor need to be in the same camp to move forward in an effective way to expand God's kingdom.
