Management Skills: Not Just for Pastors, part 2

March 15, 2021


Pastor, Author, Church Consultant, and more, Bill Easum wrote this and has graciously given me his expressed permission to share it with you here: “They didn’t teach me management skills in seminary. I wish they had because as the leader of a church I needed them badly and it’s a shame I had to learn them on my own. So I thought i would pass on some pointers.
Point Number Two: Staff seldom succeed without clearly defined expectations.
A pastor I know hired a youth director.
His set of expectations amounted to “Grow the youth group.” Instead he should have given clearly defined expectations. For example: “Build the youth group through collaboratively raising up enough adult leadership to mentor and equip 150 youth every week within two years.”
The expectations are clear and the results are measurable.
If I were starting over….
See you back here tomorrow.
