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.
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.
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.
Here’s the catch-22 when it comes to leveraging technology and implementing tools that can help your church improve it’s ministry:
Ministry would be easy if everyone in your church understood your church’s vision and shared the same passion for reaching others. Unfortunately, that will probably never be the case. Almost every church in the country has a combination of key volunteers who always go above and beyond what’s asked of them and church members who will always be spectators.
