When your leaders show up on Sunday, do you just get right to the business of what needs to be done today? Are you filling in leaders on the details of service, even as some leaders are showing up late?
Your leaders are more than just tools in the tool belt of your ministry. They are Spiritual beings made in the image of God. Today on the podcast, Sean and Chris talk about using the beginning of your weekly service prep meetings to reinforce and acknowledge this.
Here’s a bonus idea not mentioned in the podcast:
For a while, we had our leader meetings during preservice/check-in time. We had a team of parents who volunteered to serve for 15 minutes before service so that the small group leaders could all meet together. Then that team of parents would leave and go to “Big People Church” while the small group leaders took over leading the preteens.
How do you bring your leaders up to speed and touch base with your team? Share your ideas in the comment section below.
