Session 1— Doing More With Your Leaders In Less Time & with Less Money:
It can be very difficult to leverage the expertise, resources and energy of volunteers to do ministry. This is partly because too many members want to be serviced by the church but do not want to be of service to the church. Largely though, it’s because most would-be volunteers and actual volunteers are overwhelmed managing their multiple commitments. Learn how to minister to your volunteers by setting things up to get done quicker, easier and better.

Session 2—Getting Your Staff To Do More Ministry Through Your Volunteers With Limited Time & Money:
Most staff members are productive, committed people who love their church and their pastor. However, it can be like “herding cats” to get the staff and volunteers to work together, using an Ephesians 4 model. Still, you can discover the secret to inspiring synergy and unity, creativity and productivity through this session.

Session 3—Creative Ministry Corner:
Dealing with the maintenance issues of church can be mind-numbing and creativity-zapping. Therefore, it can be helpful to hear cutting-edge and creative ministry ideas from others who may rekindle your imagination and passion for things which move the church forward.

Session 4–Generating More Income for Your Church & You:
Few mentors or seminaries take the time to school ministers about how to raise money for the church and how to create additional streams of income for themselves. It’s so ironic because one of the chief tasks of any pastor is to know how to raise money. Also, one of the chief qualifications of an elder is that he/she must manage her/his household well, which includes generating adequate income and managing money wisely. Through this session, learn how to think about, attract and invest money - yours and your church’s.
