Plan Your Time & Be Productive

Setting priorities, refusing to move ahead until I get the most important things done first. What do you need to do to be more productive? Maybe it's as simple as making a fresh to-do list every day, and determining what is important and what is a really, really urgent. By the way, those are two very different things.

Beware of Ministry Tunnel Vision

It's easy, easy, easy, and I get it, to keep my peripheral vision. All I see is my ministry and what I am doing. It's easy to not give a lot of attention to my pastor's vision for what he's doing and his vision for the entire church. How much time am I spending filling this bucket right here?

Appreciate Your People Every Day

There's no way you can meet with every one of your volunteers this week, but maybe one of your volunteers you can meet at Starbucks. Or maybe one of your volunteers, you can call them on the phone not because you need anything, but because you want to tell them that you appreciate them.

Retaining Your Volunteers

What would happen if I just didn't lose volunteers? A lot of times we need volunteers because the back door is open, and we are losing volunteers for one reason or another. Now while you always be adding volunteers to the top of the funnel (you need to be adding new people), you also need to be giving attention to the bottom of the funnel or the backdoor, whatever you want to say. What am I doing to really care for these volunteers, to nurture those volunteers so that they don't leave?
