Getting MORE out of your Church Management System

Incorporating a church management system into your Church culture calls on your grittiness, your tenacity, and focus.    Getting the most out of CCB forces you to think different, and work different.  Below is a link from a new favorite podcast, that will encourage you along the way.    Embedded in this presentation are keys that will unlock your potential energy for change.  Listen, and post your comments below.

Simple Systems

Once upon a time, I had an interest in becoming a better pianist.  I came a blog post written by Greg Howlett.  Ever since then, I check his blog periodically to keep ‘hope alive.’

August 20th, he shared a blog post about running a basement business.   I strongly encourage you to read his blog post here

Lessons from his journey

  • Simple systems simply work.
  • Systems simplify life, so you can focus on Mission and Vision
  • Simple systems are teachable

My thoughts are simply this – Re-imagine church, with simple systems that even a child can understand.    DO this, and you’ll have more time to focus on the Vision and Mission that God has dreamed for your Church.

Think Different, actuallly Do different.

Knowledge is not the same as understanding.   Why am I encouraging you and your ministry leaders to watch this video? Because, for years you have experienced church in a particular fashion.  Your church management system has exposed you to new ways of doing things, but you won’t gain understanding unless you are in it everyday.

I challenge you this week, to learn something new about your church management system.  5 minutes per day, EVERY DAY, and in a few month’s time, you’ll be a better church management power user.
