Fewer Meetings, More Ministry
September 14 | 10:30-12 EST | Rev. Geoff Posegate
Your church's administrative structure should support your disciple-making mission, and not work against it. A cumbersome grid of multiple committees and endless meetings acts like a clog in the artery of your missional effectiveness. Learn how less is more, in numbers of committees, numbers of people involved in administrative governance, and numbers of meetings. Stagnant and declining churches have lots of meetings. Growing and impacting churches do lots of ministry, unhindered by complex structure. Your church can go lean and do more.
