Many church staff members tell me they find the weekly meeting frustrating in some way, so here is practical guidance to help make your staff meetings worthwhile.
Seven common frustrations are listed through the use of a case study. For example, meetings can seem a waste of time, take up too much time, or it may not be clear why some people are included and others excluded.
Seven practical ideas are offered such as:
- Define what you mean by ‘staff’
- Split into groups
- Have an occasional review.
The notes then suggest fourteen possible reasons for meeting. These include:
- Communication of information
- Discipleship training
- Planning the future
- Training/team-building sessions.
There is a final note on appropriate record keeping.
