What is Church Management Software?

Posted by Breeze Church Management on January 17, 2023

Advice

“Church management software” (ChMS) is still a relatively new term for many churches. But it certainly shouldn’t be. After all, businesses and corporations have been using management software for decades.  Why should the church be any different? In the following article, we’ll look at what church management software is, what it can be used for, and how your church can use this tool to build a stronger, healthier community for Christ. Why Don’t Churches Use ChMS? Churches aren’t always the most...

Posted by Kelsey Yarnell on January 13, 2023

Advice

“Social media marketing” has been around for more than a decade.  And yet many of us still aren’t quite sure what it means or who it’s for. Is “social media marketing” just for consumer brands and so-called influencers? Or could it be for churches? The truth is, marketing your church on social media could be one of the smartest and most affordable ways to spread the word about your community.  In the following article, we’ll look at how you can successfully market your church on social media....

How to Invest in Marriages in Your Church

Posted by Aaron Buer on January 10, 2023

Advice

Every time I ask our frontline ministry leaders what issues and challenges they are facing with people, the same answer is always at or near the top of the list. Marriages. So many marriages are struggling. I’m sure you’re running into the same thing as you serve and lead in your church. How do you invest in healthy marriages in your church? Here are five strategies we’ve been using that will hopefully help at your church as well.  #1: A Healthy Start  I remember the early days of my marriage....

Grow Your Ministry Team Through These 6 Areas

Posted by Aaron Buer on January 4, 2023

Advice

Do you know what will make your church stronger? A team that is well-trained and prepared. Maybe that’s your staff team or maybe that’s your volunteer team. Ideally, it’s both.   Whether you lead a church or a ministry within a church, here are a few key ways to strengthen and grow your core leaders.   1. Culture How people actually behave together is one of the most important aspects of your church. This is called culture.  How do you create a healthy and productive team culture? I recently...

5 Challenges in Church Administration

Posted by Kelsey Yarnell on December 27, 2022

Advice

Church administrators don’t have the most glamorous job. But anyone who has ever worked for a church knows that effective administration is absolutely critical.  Without good church administration, weekend services would be a mess. Church members wouldn’t know what’s going on. And churches could potentially lose their credibility as upstanding organizations.  But church administration is not an easy job.  Church administrators face tough logistical challenges. They must coordinate with multiple...

5 Important Church Metrics to Track

Posted by Aaron Buer on December 21, 2022

Advice

In ministry, there are a lot of things we can measure and some metrics are more helpful than others when it comes to determining the health of your church. In this post, I’m sharing 5 metrics that I find very helpful in determining where we are and how we’re doing in my church.   #1: Engagement For years, my most important metric was weekend attendance. Then, COVID changed everything. Now, I think the best measurement is church engagement. In my mind, there are three key measurements for...

A Healthier You in 2023

Posted by Aaron Buer on December 14, 2022

Advice

Will you be a healthier person in 2023 than 2022? A year from now, will you be closer to Jesus, have better boundaries, and live with more margin? Or, will you be more burned out and over-extended? I think this is an important question for us to consider.   Let me tip my hand. Whether or not 2023 is a healthier year for you has less to do with your environment and more to do with how you choose to function in your environment. If you want a healthier version of yourself as you serve and lead in...

How to Talk About Giving at Your Church

Posted by Kelsey Yarnell on December 8, 2022

Advice

Money, wealth, generosity, giving, the tithe…they can all be challenging topics to tackle in church.  But they shouldn’t be. Jesus spoke of money in 11 of his 40 parables and the Old Testament outlined firm principles on giving (see Leviticus 27:30).  Still, the subject makes many people squirm in their seats. For some, money is a taboo topic with family and friends. Many of your church members are struggling with debt (64 million Americans are carrying credit card debt). Others may feel that...

How To Unlock the Potential of People In Ministry

Posted by Aaron Buer on December 6, 2022

Advice

For years, I didn’t understand what leading people is all about. Because of this, I was accidentally stifling the potential and development of everyone around me. I made my team dependent on me. Unfortunately, I think most leaders naturally fall into this. Fundamentally, leading people is about unlocking their potential and creating an environment where they can grow and develop. When everyone is leading at their individual potential, the corporate potential for your church staff is practically...

2 Ideas for Your New Year’s Sermon

Posted by Aaron Buer on November 30, 2022

Advice

If you’re like me, you typically procrastinate on your sermon for New Year’s weekend. The preaching calendar says, “stand alone sermon” and when you notice it in September, it’s like, “eh, that’s months away.” Then in October you’re like, “I should probably figure that out.” And then in December you panic. Yeah. Been there.   I thought I would share two rough outlines I have for a sermon on New Year’s weekend. I’ll probably use one of these myself. Maybe one of these ideas will fit you and your...
