I’ll never forget that Sunday. It was a year or two into leading my first church plant. I was in a lot of pain from a slipped disc still and no-one turned up to set out the chairs, or do the P.A. I’d forgotten my mobile (it was in the days when they only made calls and texts!) and so I begun to struggle putting out chairs and setup the sound gear ready to lead worship.
The small group leader on duty hadn’t checked our rota (schedule) or their email and so hadn’t arranged for people to help. The PA guy had gone on holiday and forgotten to tell anyone.
As I was struggling with some chairs some first time visitors showed up early (because that’s what visitors do!) I was mortified, but very grateful for the help, thinking they will never come back. Thankfully, just the opposite happened. They were thinking this guy needs the help and they wanted to serve. Within weeks, she ended up running a kids and he led the PA team and played ina worship band. God is good!
That Sunday wouldn’t happen now. Volunteers get an email reminder, or SMS if they prefer and they can look at the app to see when they are doing what.
I’d love you to have a that sunday where quality visitors turn up who can help you get on with the mission. But not That Sunday! You can avoid it with Church Admin plugin organisation and communication tools and by getting the app in your church.
