A church leader I love hearing and reading is Andy Stanley.
Great speaker and writer…
Here are some thoughts from a conference he spoke at late last year… I know a little behind the times but better actonel lowest price late than never.
God works through systems. For example, your body is a complex system designed by God. It’s systematic and predictable. God created systems. That doesn’t make him small. Likewise, God works through systems in our ministry. Systems aren’t secular.
We made a fundamental decision years ago that we were going to be more committed to reaching people than keeping people.
Your current system is perfectly designed for the results you’re getting. That may be great news, or that may be bad news.
Connect the dots. You need to figure out a way for every single volunteer in your organization to understand what they contribute to the whole.
