The Internet's Best Practices for Ministry

Welcome to our site. Our mission and dedication is to equip leaders for innovative ministry. Explore. Read. Share.

Welcoming Guests and First Impressions

The sermon starts in the parking lot, and the impression you make for your guests on Sunday morning during the first 10 minutes will be indelible.

Technology and The Church

Leveraging technology for ministry can be an incredible blessing. But it can also be fraught with problems and pitfalls. Learn how to use technology well.

Vision and Leadership

Our God longs for leaders to request of Him to do that which they cannot. Faith filled vision, leadership and risk are key ingredients for ministry.

Preaching and Communication

You know and understand how challenging it is to communicate. It is hard to get and capture people's attention. Learn how to communicate effectively.

Creativity and Innovation

Being creative means asking the right questions and making new associations. Discover new and creative ideas for your ministry.

The Local Church Rises Or Falls With Its Praying

The Book of Acts contains as least 30 references to prayer in many settings. The local church rises or falls with its praying. If you ask the average member, he will say, “No, the church rises or falls with its preaching.” 

Preaching is important. But praying was behind the apostles preaching in the Book of Acts. You’ll find that the Apostle Paul was a man of prayer. Peter was a man of prayer. The early church believed in prayer. The local church and its ministry will rise or fall with its prayer life.

The 5 “R”s To Remembering Names Of Everybody You Meet

Remembering peoples names for a pastor isn't just a nice skill to is essential. And yet in ministry we meet dozens of new people every week. Here are a couple of tricks to keep those names locked in your brain for easy recall the next time you see them at church or simply at the grocery store or at the kid's soccer game.


Here are the Five RE’s to Remembering names:

1. REpeat Names

Repetition builds memory. The more you repeat a person’s name, the better chance you will have of remembering it later.

When you meet a person for the first time, say their name as much as possible. “Cool, Austin. Glad you are here, Austin. It was nice meeting you, Austin. Hope to see you next week, Austin.” The more you say it, the more it will stick.

2. Read Names
Read a person’s name in your mind. Visualize it. Spell it in your head. If you meet someone with an interesting name or a name that could be spelled multiple ways, ask them how they spell it. Then spell it in your head along with them. This may seem weird, but it works.

3. Record Names
Keep a church database, or an app with people’s names on it. After the service, write new names down as soon as possible. Add little notes like “Natalie – married, two kids, husband Jeff, works at…”

Quickly review your notes once a week and picture the people in your mind. If you have a church database with people’s pictures, that is even better!

4. Relate Names
This is the most powerful memory tip on the list. When you hear a person’s name, find an image to relate it to.

For example, take a guy named John Baker, and imagine an actual baker in a kitchen putting a toilet – a john – in the oven. Yes, this is absolutely bizarre sounding, but it works! In fact, this is what world memory champions do.

5. Remember to Remember Names
I know, “Thank you captain obvious!” Just hear me out.

How The "2 Minute Rule" Can Be A Gamechanger

Need a little boost in your productivity and help reducing your stress level...then try this "2 Minute Rule"

from 99U:

Management consultant and author of Getting Things Done, David Allen, has a two-minute rule that can not only make your projects move forward incessantly, but it can also prevent many small things from overloading your system in the first place:

If you determine an action can be done in two minutes, you actually should do it right then because it’ll take longer to organize it and review it than it would be to actually finish it the first time you notice it.

Thinking of your time in two-minute increments will allow you to get a lot of things done. When you simply do something, you eliminate all of the prioritizing, scheduling and picking of tasks. As Allen put it in a recent interview with Success magazine, the rule “is actually tricking you into making an executive decision about what is the next thing that needs to happen and that’s really the training people need.” The two-minute rule is in essence, a mind-trick.

10 Pastors I'm Worried About

In light of too many pastors who either seem to burn out (from being over-stressed) or flame out (from a moral failure) in ministry and the fact that the church seems to be trending toward decline and irrelevance within our culture - what might be driving this? Sam Storms lists several pastoral leadership profiles and tendencies that may help serve as "red flags" and warning signs in our church and ministries.

excerpted from Sam Storms

(1) I’m concerned about the pastor who is better at managing church programs than he is at making disciples of Jesus. Thom Rainer & Eric Geiger addressed this topic somewhat in the book Simple Church, but I’m not sure how many pastors paid attention to the message. The church is not better because it has more programs. It’s quite possible for programs to hinder its real mission.

(2) I’m concerned about the pastor who attracts people with fancy self-help sermons instead of teaching people to be students of the Bible and theology. Sure topical sermons can be helpful teaching tools when used appropriately and in moderation. But to pique interest in the unchurched, church-growth pastors have promoted episodic sermons ad nauseam and to no avail at effectively grounding deeply committed disciples of Jesus, as the statistics provided previously demonstrate.

(3) I’m concerned about the pastor who is a chief executive instead of a contemplative sage. The pastor is called to a contemplative life of prayer and study of the word (Acts 6:4; cf. Ephesians 4:11-16). From that life his ministry flows to the church. The pastor was never called to be a rock-star communicator or bench-mark business leader. He was called to model redemption and shepherd the flock of God (1 Peter 5:1-4; cf. Acts 20:28). Perhaps pastors should consider putting away their John Maxwell and Nelson Searcy books and picking up the Bible and the church fathers.

(4) I’m concerned about the pastor who uses the pulpit to milk members instead of minister to the saints. It was the angry atheist, Richard Dawkins, who asked Ted Haggard (back in the day) why he needed a multi-million dollar sound system that paralleled that of MTV to teach people about God. I think that’s a question that deserves an answer. Why do pastors need to build bigger and better on the backs of God’s people? I think the answer may be rooted in the human heart. Francis Chan seemed to have caught that vision when he was still pastor in Simi Valley. And if we think we need to build bigger barns, perhaps we should pray about church planting as a viable alternative.

(5) I’m concerned about the pastor who makes growing the church the goal instead of glorifying God the goal. There is no biblical mandate for growing the church. Sure there is one for propagating the gospel and making disciples. But the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever. There is nothing in Scripture, except pride, that drives pastors to drive the flocks they are supposed to be tending.

(6) I’m concerned about the pastor who builds his ministry with people instead of building people by his ministry. It seems I’ve said this already, just differently. But here I’m speaking to a philosophy that often underlies many of the abuses in the church. For example, a well-known mega-church pastor once advised me to think of people in seven-year terms. He explained that people generally burn out after seven years. And if I wanted to build a big ministry for God, I would need to leverage those seven years. Funny, I don’t recall God asking pastors to leverage his people for the pastor’s dream of building a big church for God.

(7) I’m concerned about the pastor who cultivates a culture of dependency on himself instead of cultivating a culture of community within the church. 

(8) I’m concerned about the pastor who reads and teaches the Bible literally instead of literarily. 

(9) I’m concerned about the pastor who contributes to the culture of consumerism instead of combating idolatry. 

(10) I’m concerned about the pastor who sees the church as a stepping stone instead of seeing it as a custodian of Christ’s kingdom.

What Are The Most & Least Bible-Minded Cities in the U.S.?

from Barna:

The social, economic and political values of any given city compose a richly distinct cultural climate—but what about the spiritual values? How does one city differ in spiritual profile to the next?

Barna Group’s latest Barna:Cities study, conducted annually in partnership with the American Bible Society, examines a combination of regular Bible reading with belief in the Bible’s accuracy across the top 100 metropolitan areas in the United States. The result reveals a geographical portrait of the most and least Bible-minded U.S. cities.

The 50 Best Christian Books Ever Written

"Danger...Will Robinson....Danger!!!" says the robot on Lost in Space.

Lists that acclaim the "Best Of" can certainly be dangerous and have the potential to cause a lot of controversy! Why? Because there is always the risk of leaving out someone's favorite book or listing a book that a some may think shouldn't be on the list. This list isn't perfect and these books on the list may not be the most popular, the best known, or even the “hottest.” Rather these are books that I either regard as exceptional or I believe have made a significant impact on the church.

Disclaimer: The books are not listed in any particular order. Also I don’t agree with every word of every book nor do I agree with everything the authors have ever said, done, or written elsewhere. Also, I tried to limit a maximum of two mentions per author because I didn't want any one author to overwhelm the list.

True Care Is In The Details

Guest post by Taylor Doe from the CareNotebook

People feel genuinely cared for when you remember the details in their lives.  Most pastors have a system for remembering details about relationships, and I’ve taken the time to study how these pastors, chaplains, and leaders keep care details organized. Some of the questions I’ve asked include:
  • How do you stay organized when caring for your congregation?
  • How do you remember conversations and important events in people’s lives?
  • What system do you have in place to quickly recall these events and details?
  • If you have staff members and/or volunteers providing care, how do ensure care is actually taking place and meeting your expectations?
I’ve noticed four primary ways pastors organize care. Listed below are the pros and cons for each approach.

1. Good ol’ pen and paper.

Pro:  Some pastors are comfortable with handwritten notes. Sometimes it’s easier to just keep the analog system that’s already in place.

Con: Trying to locate a name/detail in a spiral notebook or multiple notepads can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. Losing the notebook or having it fall into the wrong hands is always a worry. A particular notepad must be within arm’s-length to be of any value.

2. Word or Excel Document.

Pro: Most everyone has access to Word and Excel.  People with varying degrees of computer knowledge are able to use word processors and spreadsheets to catalog care.

Con: “Is this the most recent file?” When updating and sharing Word documents, it’s hard to feel confident everything is up to date. Once someone has received care, they often get erased from the list. This eliminates all care history which could be important in caring for that person’s needs in the future.

3. Basic notes app on smart phone. 

Pro: Your phone and notes are with you wherever you go. It’s easy to copy and paste information into an email if you need to relay information to others. From the palm of your hand, search for names and details quickly. 

Con: Some note apps don’t allow you to backup your information on your computer - it’s only on your mobile device. If the phone is lost, stolen, or broken, there goes everything!  Also, team collaboration proves difficult with this approach.

4. Cloud-based Applications. 

Pro: Cloud-based apps are becoming more and more popular. Evernote and Google Drive are the two most popular in the care industry. All the information is stored online so you can access important details from any device. Team features allow you to share information with others. 

Con: It’s hard to find just the right way to set-up these applications for you and your team’s specific care requirements. Relevant notifications and reminders aren’t available in these applications, so a separate tools are needed to organize date/time specific events in people’s lives.

I have felt the same frustrations as pastors and chaplains I interviewed.I have felt overwhelmed with the pressure of remembering details and important dates. Because of this, I decided to assemble a team and build an app specifically for caring-minded people.

The CareNotebook is a web/mobile application that helps organize details and record the care pastors and chaplains provide to others. Add Care Updates when you have important conversations. Set Care Reminders for important events such as surgery or starting a new job. 

We built this tool to serve people and help continue care legacies for years to come.

Three Steps For Easy Ministry Management

Guest Post by Laura Iancu

Keeping up with all the daily tasks of maintaining a congregation is hard enough. But when you want to implement new projects and activities, things get even more complicated. Thus management becomes one of the main skills which a church leader needs. Some have adapted and understood that the key was to find some tools to ease their work.

Establish your priorities

So the first step would be to find what works for you, which are the areas that need enhancement and what kind of tool would you like to use. Most people tend to adopt online tools. Downloading and installing programs has become a burden which most of us try to escape from. Decide for you own what kind of tool would you need and how should it work.

Gather data

The second step would be to make a list of apps and software which could do the trick for what you need. To filter them and be more efficient you can narrow the list by keeping those tools which could be used for multiple purposes. 

In this step you might want to look into: form builders, management systems and CRMs.

Form builders are a great asset because they are versatile and can provide you solutions for multiple tasks. For example you can handle online donations with custom and branded online donation forms like this one. Likewise, you can handle event registrations with no effort at all. So if you are organizing a camp, a study group, a big conference or a small get-together, you can do the registration seamlessly with such a tool. And that’s not all, think about volunteer recruitment, surveys and all kind of forms to get in touch with your congregation. For simple forms you could try Google Forms and for advanced forms such as donation gathering ones try 123ContactForm.

As for data management, CRMs are great to handle databases and contacts. You can also try Evernote for todos and clipping information from your browser.

Test your choices

After you’ve done this list it might be good to go to step three before implementing them in your management processes. At this step you should allot some time to test these tools because some might surprise you and do more than you expect and other might not be appropriate for what you’re looking for. Testing is always a good idea. Also, at this stage you can compare prices and look for discounts. Keep in mind that some of these providers offer discounts for all nonprofit organizations, including churches. Talk to them and find out.

Do you have your own favorite tools which help you in management?

Why Unplugging May Be Good For You

I have had several conversations recently with friends that have talked about their journey with unplugging. Unplugging from tech. Unplugging from social media. Unplugging from T.V.  Some people have done a complete fast for a season, while others have simply throttled down their online activities. And I can't think of a person who said that they regretted doing it. Personally, I have during different seasons taken a break from social media and online activities, and I know that it can be very hard - especially that withdrawal time. But at the same time it can be very rewarding.

Here are some thoughts from Edudemic on why it is good to unplug!

Why unplugging is good for you!
  • 3 out of 5 people spend more time with their technology than they do with their spouse
  • 81% of people are willing to interrupt a conversation or a meal to check their device
  • The 25% of people who scored best on a multitasking test were those who actually focused on one task at a time
  • Unplugging allows you to de-stress
  • 86% of men and 67% of women work more than 40 hours per week
  • A Harvard study reports that between 12 and 20 million people in the US have ‘at least a mild internet addiction’
  • Those who are dependent lose interest in other activities, experience withdrawal symptoms, and need more and more time to get their ‘high’
  • This often disrupts real life relationships, and forces the individual to use the internet to improve their mood
  • 46% of Britons say they spend more time using their device in bed, while 15% say it affects the amount of sex they have
  • Some ailments from overuse of the internet include eyestrain, back pain, headaches, and itchy, watery eyes
Ways to Unplug
  • Set aside a special time for social media
  • Avoid checking your phone within an hour of waking and an hour of going to bed
  • Move apps away from your home screen
  • Disable notifications
  • Find alternative activities to take up a few minutes, like stretching, prioritizing your to-do list, brushing and flossing your teeth, doing some pushups, or taking a walk
Here is a helpful infographic outlining the benefits of unplugging:

Great Leadership Helps Others Succeed

Philip Nation's thought certainly reflects a significant facet to great leadership - which is a willingness to go unnoticed while those you lead are successful and shine. Yet let me suggest a addendum to that thought.

Behind that willingness to go unnoticed is a fundamental desire of a great leader to seek to make those on their team successful. A great leader doesn't merely demand that the team main function is to make themselves look good and succeed. Rather, a great leader seeks out how to coach, lead, direct, encourage, resource, cheerlead and pray for their team member's success and growth.

That is the mark of a great leader.

The Most Radical Demand Of Christian Faith

“For me the most radical demand of Christian faith lies in summoning the courage to say yes to the present risenness of Jesus Christ.”

16 Leadership Lessons From A 4-Star General

Excerpted life and leadership lessons from General Stanley McChrystal's memoir: My Share of the Task.

Here is a sample (from Farnam Street Blog):

4. Leaders take us to where we’d otherwise not go.

Although Englishmen rushing into the breach behind Henry V is a familiar image, leaders whose personal example or patient persuasion causes dramatic changes in otherwise inertia-bound organizations or societies are far more significant. The teacher who awakens and encourages in students a sense of possibility and responsibility is, to me, the ultimate leader.

5. Success is rarely the work of a single leader.

… leaders work best in partnership with other leaders. In Iraq in 2004, I received specific direction to track Zarqawi and bring him to justice. But it was the collaboration of leaders below me, inside TF 714, that built the teams, relentlessly hunted, and ultimately destroyed his lethal network.

6. Leaders are empathetic.

The best leaders I’ve seen have an uncanny ability to understand, empathize, and communicate with those they lead. They need not agree or share the same background or status in society as their followers, but they understand their hopes, fears, and passions. Great leaders intuitively sense, or simply ask, how people feel and what resonates with them. At their worst, demigods like Adolf Hitler manipulate the passions of frustrated populations into misguided forces. But empathy can be remarkably positive when a Nelson Mandela reshapes and redirects the energy of a movement away from violence and into constructive nation-building.

7. Leadership is not popularity.

For soldiers, the choice between popularity and effectiveness is ultimately no choice at all. Soldiers want to win; their survival depends upon it. They will accept, and even take pride in, the quirks and shortcomings of a leader if they believe he or she can produce success.

8. The best leaders are genuine.

I found soldiers would tolerate my being less of a leader than I hoped to be, but they would not forgive me being less than I claimed to be. Simple honesty matters.

Can't help think that these and many other's of General McChrystal's leadership lessons are not only transferable but needed in today's church and for today's ministry leader.

5 Things To Pray For Your Congregation

from GoodBook blog:

I don't wish to make you squirm. I certainly don't want to make you feel guilty. But let me ask you a question: When was the last time you prayed for your congregation? I don't mean praying for specific individuals or events within the congregation but prayed for the congregation as a whole? If you're anything like me, it's the sort of thing that can easily fall off our prayer-lists ... or not even make it on to them in the first place. But our congregation is our family. It's full of the people who the Father has deliberately chosen - the people who God is using to make us more like Jesus. We are called to learn together, share together, encourage together and grow together. And they, without doubt, need prayer! So, why not take a moment now to pray for your congregation as a whole? You might like to use the wonderful words of Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians as a basis:

1. Thank God for your brothers and sisters - for their faith, their love, their work and their perseverance.
We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers. We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labour prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. (I Thess 1:2-3)

2. Thank God that he is at work and will remain at work in your brothers and sisters - through his word.And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.. (1 Thess 2:13)

3. Ask God to help your brothers and sisters to keep growing - in their faith, wisdom, their love for one another, their love for unbelievers and their holiness.How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you? Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith. Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you. May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones. (1Thess 3:9-13)

4. Ask God to help your brothers and sisters to keep their eyes on the peace brought by the cross and the hope of Jesus' return and to live faithfully in the light of both those things.May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. (1 Thess 5:23-24)

5. Ask God to help your congregation remember that Jesus' grace is all they need - today and every day.The grace of our Lord Jesus Church be with you (1 Thess 5:28)

A Powerful Easter Illustration

On the morning that Jesus rose from the dead, the angels asked a profound question that can still be asked of us today. In this motion graphics piece, we are reminded that Jesus is no longer in the grave- He is here with us! Used as a service opener or part of the worship set, this will be a great part of your Easter service.

Empty - Redefined!

While empty may be perceived as a burden in our lives, empty is what gives us promise for the days ahead. For all who believe Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead, empty is redefined.
