We all know the importance of aligning the suspension on your car. I have this checked no less than once a year. Failing to do so makes it more difficult to keep the car pointed where I want it to go. It also forces me to replace tires much sooner, costing me time and money. If it’s easy to understand the value of alignment for a car, why is it so often undervalued within our churches?
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.
You want to be as prepared as possible when the time comes to make a decision about your next church management software. Whether you’re looking into a new church management software because you fully understand the value it can have in your ministry or because you’ve heard about the impact it can make, getting the decision right is critical.
At Church Community Builder, we talk a lot about how technology can improve the way you do ministry. While technology makes capturing data, numbers, and trends easier, if we’re only tracking numbers, we can easily slip into a catch and release ministry mentality that doesn’t make people feel valued. My friend Chris Mavity cautioned against this and gave several ways your church can break the system of approaching ministry like a fishing experience. Chris explained that the only real way for effective long-term ministry is to value your members as people.
Will Mancini is not only a friend but one of the most respected leaders in the church space. I'm grateful he takes my calls and am excited about new opportunities for us to collaborate and work together. He's even been helping the leadership team at Church Community Builder become clearer and more specific about who we are and where we are headed. His process will exhaust you, but it's so worth it. We want to be good stewards of the resources and opportunity God gives us to help churches make better disciples and multiply their Kingdom impact.
