This new book offers relief for those who have spent numerous hours and evenings serving on committees or boards in their churches or nonprofit organizations.
With decades of experience in being a part of church boards, Rev. Bob Moss provides a step-by-step guide for implementing a healthy decision-making structure and training your church or nonprofit board to function with clarity and effectiveness.
Bob Moss is an executive leader at Church of God Ministries. Before taking up this responsibility in 2014, he served for more than thirty years in pastoral ministry, including congregations in Washington, Wyoming, Michigan, and Ohio. He also served as the executive state minister for the 150 congregations in Indiana and led with distinction as a two-term chairman of the North American General Assembly of the Church of God. Internationally, his ministry has extended to India, Paraguay, Lebanon, Germany, and Hungary.
Leaders, pastors, board members and ministers alike will appreciate Bob’s thoughtful approach to changing meetings in order to get ministry moving again.
We can all relate to too many meetings and a lack of clarity about decision making that leave pastors and board/committee members at their wits end.
In many churches, roles and responsibilities are confused. Many times it appears that the pastor and staff minister, the congregation governs, and the board leads and manages. There is a better way.
Think about your congregation’s future in terms of a board that works with pastoral leadership to imagine the future, and to hold the pastor accountable to lead in a way in which that vision is fulfilled.
Once leaders begin planning the look of the new structure and fine-tuning it, the very important task of communicating with the congregation remains.
5 simple steps to prepare your church for the vote.
People will be eager to understand their role in the new system. They want to understand how it works, and they need help seeing how a ministry team functions differently than a committee.
