Episode 016: Support Raising Ministry

Episode Takeaways:

  • Consider "tithing" your week - set aside several hours a week to minister to your team so that it's not an afterthought.
  • Get creative in connecting with your team - video, anniversary cards, small Christmas gifts, for pastors - pastor appreciation and Easter. 
  • In times of frustration, be sure to check your heart
    • Are you struggling with entitlement?
    • Are you seeing this as a "have to" or a "get to"? - this is a ministry opportunity and a privilege
    • Are you called? Go WILL provide! God is doing something in us through this process that will help us and our ministry. 
    • Are you communicating a need or a confident and passionate vision?
    • Are you dealing with theological roadblocks?
  • Minister to the members of your support team with a similar level of love and intentionality generally, but communicate with them in a way that touches their heart specifically.
    • A business leader and a single mom do not necessarily connect with the same stories and methods of communication.
    • Think of ways to connect with them in a format that makes sense and touches their heart.
