    Hi there,
    When I choose to add a new ministry, there a couple fields I’m not sure what they are.
    At the most basic level it seems Ministries are any job or committee at the church. From Clergy, to Office Assistant, to Finance Committee. Is that true?

    If we also have social groups, like Bible Study, Womens’ Group, or Youth Group, would those also be Ministries, or would those go under Small Groups?

    Back to Ministries, what is the “Team Contacts”? I assumed this would be the Team Leader of the Ministry, or Chairperson of the committee. But since they’re not in the “People in ministry” field, they don’t show up in the Ministries PDF report.
    – What role does the Team Contact have?
    – Are they the leader of the ministry or something else?
    – How else are they used in the plugin?

    Thanks!

    Ministries are for departments and jobs within church like the ones you mention.
    Small group is normally for home groups in a church but is suitable for any activity that occurs regularly like the one’s you mention.

    There is a volunteer shortcode that allows you to recruit via the shortcode volunteers for a ministry – the team contact would be the one who gets an email when someone volunteers and can accept/decline the offer to help through the automated email. Some ministries I would make the team leader the team contact and others our administrator would be the team contact!

    Hi Andy,

    I’ve had a look through the user guide I downloaded and also searched through the shortcodes list, BUT I can’t find the shortcode to add for vounteers to a ministry?

    I’ve created a list of ministries and ticked the ‘allow online volunteers’ but can see how to add it??

    Apologies if I’m being a numpty here!

    Blessings,
    Rich.
