As a leader — whether at home, at work, at church, wherever I am — I’ve got one job that’s more important that any other. I need to replace myself.
People know you as the office expert, but you know the role goes much deeper. Success for you is about empowering your leaders with the data and administrative support they need to understand how people are being cared for and how God is moving in your ministry.
For me, there’s nothing like sitting down eye to eye with our church partners. I have a lot of long-distance phone conversations with church leaders, so when I get the opportunity to have face time with them, I always come back excited and inspired about the ministry impact being made and the role we get to play in making that possible.
I get it. Researching church management software and which option is the best for your church is not the most exciting thing in the world to most people. However, this is a much more important decision that most people realize. Whether you fully understand the value it can have in supporting your ministry or you’re not really sure but have heard others talk about it, getting the decision right is critical. If you don’t, you’ll not only hear about it from your staff, you’ll end up wasting valuable time and money.
Equipping the saints is the process of changing a Christ believer into a Christ follower — getting people out of the pew and into action. However, if we truly want to build a ministry where every volunteer is thriving, we need to help each person find their groove in ministry.
