YOUR CHURCH NEEDS EFFECTIVE SYSTEMS
Most churches look like they have it all together on the surface.
Passionate staff and smiling volunteers are helping make Sundays happen.
The lights are on and people are still pulling into the parking lot to attend service, serve, and give each week.
But underneath the surface, the systems are in shambles.
When you’re in a church you love and you have the right people in the right roles, what can you do to help the church operate more smoothly and keep your staff and volunteers from burning out?
The answer is to get better systems.
Systems can keep first-time guests from falling through the cracks, help retain volunteers, improve financial stewardship, and more.
Here are some of our best resources on this topic.

How to Re-Engage Your Volunteers
The Seven Systems Every Church Needs
You can have a clear mission, but without healthy systems, you’re not going to get everyone moving in the right direction. You can preach the vision, but if you don’t have a clear path for people, your vision talk with be just talk.
That’s because you don’t have a mission problem, or a facility problem, or even a volunteer problem. You’re probably knee deep in a systems problem.
Passion isn’t enough and vision isn’t enough. You’ve got to organize and align everything if you want to see fruit. You’ve got to bring some systems and structure to the passion and vision.

We built Church Fuel for pastors of normal-sized churches
We don't use the term “small churches.” Because you're not small, you're normal-sized. You're showing up everyday, working hard to reach people and help them grow in their faith.
You don't have to be a mega-church to make an impact in your community. You need passion and vision and calling, for sure. But you also would benefit from systems, strategy, and practical best-practices.
