Others may include
FaithfulnessTake Paul’s lead as you begin selecting workers to help you accomplish your objectives. Paul wrote, “And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be about to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2).
Good Christian workers need to be loyal to Christ, the leader, organization, the job allotted to them, and to other workers.
AvailabilityA second important qulity to look for in selecting workers is the worker's availability. They must show up for training and work. One can hear the disappointment in Paul’s words when he wrote Timothy, “You are aware of the fact that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes” (2 Timothy 1:15).
Christian worker’s heads, hearts and bodies must be in the work. One must be patient with those who make promises and commitments, but don’t show up and give excuses. Don’t select them for key positions.
TeachabilityChristian workers must be teachable, open to new ideas and different ways of doing things. Paul told Titus, “For there are many rebellious men, empty talkers and deceivers” (Titus 1:10). We live in a world of constant change, and we must be able to change with it.
Plans change, new technology appears, circumstances change; consequently, when you select workers, pick the ones who will listen and learn. Find those who will quickly accept responsibility when they make mistakes, and make corrections.
Good CharacterDon’t pick drunkards, losers and thieves for key positions. Workers must have integrity, honesty, and be solid in character. This is especially important in leadership positions. Paul said that pastor’s must have a good reputation within the community (1 Timothy 3:7).
Proven SkillsChristian workers should have proven skill sets as shown by their experience, credentials, education, and interests. Paul said, “but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?” (1 Timothy 3:5). Again, he said that leaders, “may be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict” (Titus 1:9).
The skill sets in view with Paul is that Christian workers must have management skills, a good intellectual grasp of the Bible, and good communication skills.
