Congregational Organization and Management

Instructor: Jon Hein

A plan, no matter how carefully crafted, is worthless if it is not "worked" properly. The orderly implementation of a plan, including the proper allocation of resources, is what Scripture calls "management." This course examines how to convert both a strategic plan and annual ministry plan into action plans which then govern all ministry activity within the congregation. The class will examine various components of good plan management: proper governance (one that makes use of the gifts of men and women in Scripturally appropriate ways); leadership development; recruitment and motivation for volunteerism; and multi-leveled communication. The learner will come away with an understanding of how to convert what is on paper (plans) into action (ministry).

In summer 2024 this course will run June 17-21 from 10:45 am - 12:30 pm.
