My System for Leading an Awesome Meeting
Ministry is about people. Therefore, ministry leaders have many important conversations and meetings.
As a busy church worker, you need to make the most of every meeting and conversation that you have. Just think of all the meetings that you have each month.
Team planning meetings
Talking with volunteers
Annual performance reviews
Most ministry leaders are busy and don’t have the amount of time they’d like to prepare for these meetings and conversations.
The result? Unfocused conversations and unproductive meetings.
You need to enter a meeting with a clear purpose and course of action.
You need a method to take notes and document your conversations for future reference.
You need a way to remind yourself of decisions made in meetings.
I have developed a simple one-page tool that has helped me prepare for my meetings, keeps me on track during conversations, and provides me a way to follow up if needed after a meeting.
I’d like to share it with you.
My Ministry Meeting Notes can keep you focused on the topic at hand and the people you are conversing with. The templates remind you to plan ahead for your meetings, stay on track, and keep you accountable for following up on important action items.
The minimal design of each page in this notebook is designed to keep your focus on what is important. Each page of notes is formatted to follow the natural flow of your meetings.
I hope that Ministry Meeting Notes gives you an organizational edge.
Ministry is important.
People are important.
Being organized is important so you can carry out your ministry to people.
