Ministry is about people.
As a ministry leader, you meet with people...a lot.
Think about the meetings that you have: planning meetings, board meetings, coaching sessions, talking with volunteers, staff meetings, counseling sessions, hiring someone, firing someone.
If you are like me, you wish that you had more time to prepare for all of your meetings. I also need an organized way to remember what was said and decided on in a meeting. I've learned that if I don't have an organized method to plan and follow-up, I tend to have unfocused and unproductive meetings.
As a ministry leader, this is a problem.
I have tried several resources that promised to help me prepare for a meeting, take notes during a meeting, and follow-up after a meeting. Maybe it is just me, but none of them were much help.
My frustration with unfocused meetings led me to develop my own one-page template that I now use to prepare for meetings, keep meetings on task, and write down what I need to do after meetings. Using my own template, designed for the work of ministry, my meetings have become more focused and productive.
I have decided to share my ministry meeting template with you.
Check out Ministry Meeting Notes! A notebook with 120 blank meeting note templates designed for ministry leaders. This NEW resource will help you organize your thoughts before, during, and after a meeting. You will also have a documented record of your meetings!
The notebook is available in both hardcover and softcover editions. While both versions are great, I personally use the hardcover editions because I like a sturdy surface to write on.
