Good Management Practices for a Church

Managing a church takes some knowledge of business and finances. While a church isn’t a business, successful management of a church requires good business skills. Finances and scheduling volunteers are just a small part of maintaining a church, but they are an important part.

Planning and Goals

The church, no matter how small, should have someone that schedules and makes future plans for the church. Maintaining the schedule, updating social media, updating the website, and planning event times are important to running the church smoothly. Someone who is well organized, or a committee that makes these decisions, should structure the schedule with plenty of time for cleaning and people to socialize.

Goals for the church are important. This can play a part in the budget process. Managing fundraisers, budgets, income, church insurance, and expenses can keep the church running well and staying financially healthy. All the expenses a church has to pay to stay open are the priority. Then, the event funds and other services to the community. It is important that the budget is structured well for a church because funds may not be stable. Paying bills ahead of schedule is good practice for a church. Then, the church can focus on goals easier.

Volunteer and Staff Management

Volunteers and staff are important in running a church well. Management is essential, even if the volunteers are the only workers. Deadlines and training are required for the church to stay on track with goals. Schedule training sessions and give volunteers and staff the ability to submit suggestions. This keeps morale up and helps everyone feel like they are a part of something greater.

Schedule Church Maintenance

Cleaning and grounds maintenance are good practices to schedule for days the church is open. Volunteers can do these jobs well and independently. Train the volunteers and provide the supplies they need to get the jobs done. Let them know schedules and deadlines for the positions ahead of time. A back-up person for maintenance is important for illnesses and vacations.

When everyone is involved in the church and the goals it has, it is easy to manage people and money well. Volunteers and strategy for financial obligations are important for the church to run well. A team effort is one of the best ways to view managing a church.

My husband and I had been unhappy with our insurance company for some time, we added security systems to our homes and when we called our insurance company in hopes of getting a better rate nothing changed. We then began our search for a new company.

After sending out several questionnaires from several websites Nolan Jackson Insurance was the first to respond, not only with an upbeat attitude, but he was so helpful in earning our business.

We could not be more pleased with the way in which he has handled all of our questions as well as our needs. His knowledge of his profession, as well as being able to help guide us through what we needed is second to none. His continued customer service is something you do not find often in today’s world typically once someone writes a policy that’s the end of hearing from them, with Nolan it is everything from the original information to making sure that we received all the follow up paperwork for our files.
