The simple process of remembering who attended your church can help you in planning your weekly visitation schedule. Imagine how special your guests and members would feel if they were engaged with a warm, thoughtful message (email or phone call) as soon as they missed one worship service? Could that help in creating stronger community bonds in your church?  I think so. So, cast your vision for 2017, identify a team of volunteers and staff to take attendance and begin creating a more connected church.

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.
