The systems you have in place in your church or even in your business are the foundation for all the good stuff that is going to come. Without a system in place, we don’t know where to put the issues that come up, the wins that we see, and the problems that pop up. Systems are the grid behind what we do.
So. When it comes to church systems, remember,..
You can’t fix what you don’t have
What I mean is it’s better to have a semi good system in place than to have no system in place at all. If you get something going, you can always make changes later… you can always try to fix it. If you have nothing in place, you have nothing to fix and nothing to help you solve the problems and holes that you find.
Whether you’re looking at volunteers, staff policies, assimilation, kids’ ministry practices, etc, get a system in place. It doesn’t have to be perfect right away, but it has to be in place.
