In this earlier post we established the importance of planning for your church / organization. We concluded if you aren’t deliberate about activities you’d be prone to distractions. Not only that, but that you also risk wasting and abusing resources. There are many things we can explore in relation to strategy. A culture of planning in your church or organization is critical for sustained impact.
Church staff and those working for small ministries and nonprofits understand what it’s like to wear “many hats.” Youth Pastors responsible for the website, church secretaries deligated to care for Facebook — the list goes on.
But don’t most smaller organizations have this pain point? Is there a difference?
“So many hats, so little time”: this week on the podcast, we barely scratch the surface of this glacier of a topic.
Effective churches and organizations are focused. As much as they can, they’re deliberate with the why as well as what and how they do what they do. This is impossible without planning. Anything sustained and significant in church or organizational life cannot happen by accident. Planning can’t be an optional extra if you’re going to be faithful mission-stewards. You probably know on the importance of planning in your church but this post is worth your attention.
Just kidding (but seriously).
Do you need some inspiration? Or are you feeling burned-out?
Take a listen to this weeks… therapy session.
The website is finished. The Facebook page has been set up. You’ve been running the soundboard for years. Now what? How do you find inspiration? Now what do you do next? How do you move forward?
In this episode of the podcast we discuss how to deal with the day-to-day. Now, let’s talk about it!
“Worship leaders” aren’t as ‘contemporary’ as some think they are. If you pay careful attention, particularly in the Old Testament, you’ll see that there are people who facilitated worship. The ‘priesthood of all believers’ doesn’t take away from that we all have different giftings. And one of those areas of gifting is music. Music is one of the ways of expressing worship. Many churches do this weekly. How we facilitate or lead in the time of worship can hinder or enable people from connecting with God.
