Summer time can be a dreaded season for pastors. Attendance drops, giving decreases, and volunteer commitment dwindles. What’s a pastor to do? That’s what Pastor Gene and I are discussing today!
Here are a a few key points from your discussion.
I often teach about the 7 Growth Points of Every Organization and in the summer time, I think pastors should be focused on the first three:
The leader must grow.
The leadership team must grow.
The systems must grow.
To take advantage of the summer time, we do the following with our staff:
Encourage them to attend a conference.
Teach them about personal growth and re-creation.
We resource them with books and podcasts.
We evaluate them and our systems.
