Church events are big gatherings for many occasions. If you want to plan an event at your church, you should have a plan ready and call a meeting to discuss your plan. The best way to start planning for the big event is to start with input from the people who attend your church.
What is the Goal of the Event?
Have a solid reason for hosting the event at your church and present it to the people you want to volunteer or help you coordinate the event.
List out everything that costs money for the event. Then, see if the church has enough money to host the event. If there isn’t enough money, you may need to have a fundraiser before hosting the event.
Will You Market the Event?
Marketing may be easy with volunteers. Gather some people that will help you create a marketing plan and get the community excited. You may be able to take your event to local television and radio stations for promotion. You could also pass out fliers or post on social media for your event.
There are several jobs that need to be done for a large church event. Have someone coordinate the event and handle the administrative tasks. This person should make sure that you have church insurance that covers the event, keep track of the volunteers, and order supplies. There should also be volunteers in control of the event activities, food, decorating, and event preparations. Everyone should stay behind to clean up after the event, which makes it easier for everyone to get home at a decent time.
Create Charts for Everyone
A chart is a good way for everyone involved in the event to stay on track and keep the coordinator updated. It is also easy to add duties to the chart for people to remember what they volunteered to do. If everyone has a copy and someone isn’t available the day of the event, it is easy for others to see what needs to be done.
Church events are a great way to get the community and members of your church involved in something fun. Staying organized and having specific roles for each volunteer to do helps keep everything running smoothly.
