Last week I made my bi-annual trek to the Horticulture Class Plant Sale at our local high school. I purchased two beautiful hanging baskets, flowers for the pots on our front and back porch, and several vegetable plants and herbs for our square foot garden.
Is your team struggling to get women to show up at your women’s ministry events and activities?
If that is the case, you are not alone!
How do you strike the balance of making sure every team member has a say and empowering your team members to make decisions?
I’ve sat on a team where there were no clear roles or responsibilities.
I need to apologize, the list that follows is probably going to come across a bit critical. You may view it as a list of complaints.
I’ve thought about trying to re-write the whole piece from a positive angle. “10 Things I Love about Well-Run Team Meetings” or something like that.
Over the last 10+ years I’ve had the opportunity to serve on three women’s ministry teams in three different churches.
Everywhere I’ve served and even in the places where I haven’t, I’ve seen this women’s ministry mistake committed over and over again. And I’m not just throwing stones, I’m 100% guilty of committing it myself.
I’m curious, how would you describe the way your women’s ministry team operates?
I’m guessing the word “effective” may not be the first word that comes to mind…
I’m curious, how many of you send out an agenda prior to your women’s ministry team meetings?
I know it’s one more item to add to your to-do list… and it might seem unnecessary.
But having sat in meetings with and without agendas, I believe agendas directly impact the success of our meetings.
Recruiting women to serve on your Women’s Ministry Team is one of the most important things you will do as a Women’s Ministry Leader.
It can make or break your team. It can also make or break your ministry.
Today we’re tackling one of Women’s Ministry’s biggest questions.
Because there are so many scenarios to take into consideration, I’m going to break it down into a series of posts.
What is the role of the Women’s Ministry?
Your church constitution or by-laws may specify events, activities, or roles your team is to fill in your church.
Today, we’re going to take a look at renovating your Women’s Ministry Mission statement.
I probably should have made this number 1 on the list, rather than listing them alphabetically.
You need to know what you’re aiming for before you can decide what needs renovation.
Today we’re going to take a close look at decorating and how you might need to do some renovating in that area of your women’s ministry.
God has been stirring in my heart for some time the need for Women’s Ministries to assess their renovation needs.
What we did 5, 8, or even 10 years ago is no longer effective.
We are struggling to reach the younger generations and when we do, we struggle to include them on a broader scale.
Praying for your team members is the most powerful and most important thing you can do.
Sometimes I get busy and forget to pray for my team. It’s embarrassing, but it’s honest.
Sometimes I seem to pray the same thing over and over. Stuck like a broken record.
