Prophets or Priests?

One of the things that I have definitely been wrestling with is the idea of being a prophetic voice in the midst of a church culture. Sometimes I have thought and heard that it would be easier to lead as a general congregation member than as a paid staff person.
In my blog reading, I stumbled into this great article which has some fantastic gems like this:
A prophet by definition is going to disturb the status quo, make people uncomfortable, and rock the boat. But when a pastor with a prophetic function is completely dependant upon the congregation for his/her livelihood it creates a conflict of interests.
