5 Time Management Tips For Busy Church Staffs

In my time on a church staff, I often caught myself saying, “When things slow down, I’ll _______,” (fill in the blank with whatever task or responsibility I didn’t have time to accomplish but had dreams of one day doing). After awhile, I eventually came to discover that life is usually busy, and I’d never have time to do any of those things if I didn’t make time for them.

The 5 Best Ways For Your Church To Connect With First-Time Guests

 

A few years ago, along with my wife and a few friends, I decided to visit a large church we had heard about. I was excited. The preacher was well-known as one of the best in the country.

So, striving to do everything we could to win as many for Christ as possible, we went through the difficult, time-consuming, and expensive process of changing the name of our church.
