Synopsis

Most churches expect people to become Trustees / Deacons / PCC members or serve on some kind of committee without any training in how to do this well.

These notes are written for a new committee member, but should prove useful reading for all who serve on any church decision-making body. They advise:

PLEAD
The vital need for prayer whether it’s a Finance Sub-Committee or an Eldership.

LISTEN
Listen to others more than you speak and help form the group into a team.

ENTHUSE
See the possibilities of what God could do through this group.

ASK
Learn the art of asking the right questions for meetings and for yourself.

DECIDE
Help the meeting make clear decisions and take firm action.
