Meetings that Kill

I am currently on vacation. Therefore I have automatically scheduled posts throughout the week that are the "Best of...". These are the posts in the last 90 days that, according to Google, have been read the most on the blog.

If you are new to the blog, I hope you will enjoy some of these posts from the past. If you have been a long time reader of the blog, I trust you'll appreciate seeing again some of your favorite posts.

Churches are notorious for meetings. We actually have meetings in order to plan meetings!

I am sure this can be true in just about every professional setting. Meetings can be a problematic. Too many meetings. Unproductive meetings. Boring meetings.

People, as busy enough as they are, don't want to go to meetings just for the sake of going to meetings. And since, in the church, most of the people we work with are volunteers, as a leader, you have to work extra hard on making meetings worthwhile when you have them. Because since you don't pay volunteers you can't order them to come to the next meeting you call.

Here are some helpful thoughts and tips that I have discovered to help avoid, "Death by Meetings".



Great post Bill. I hate meetings but understand how they can be helpful when you follow these guidelines.
