Virtual services continue to grow in popularity as well. They are…


In the modern world, declining attendance is a problem faced by almost every church. It is tempting to dismiss the problem as an indication of changing cultural attitudes. However, church leaders who want to address the issue need to look closely at why people are no longer attending their church services.

Cliques Create an Unwelcome Atmosphere

Churches work hard to provide a sense of community, but unfortunately, sometimes, this can make the church feel like a members-only club. This can be overwhelming for new visitors, who feel left out and confused by things like insider terminology and references to people a guest will not recognize…


Although the COVID pandemic has turned a corner in recent months, church leaders should remain mindful of the virus. Many people in the country are still not vaccinated, and this places your congregation at risk. Here are three mistakes to avoid in your church until the COVID pandemic is under control,

Turning Off Digital

COVID required churches to go into the digital age to maintain communication with congregations and provide uplifting sermons.

Many people…


Volunteers hold an essential part in the functioning of a successful children’s ministry program. Anyone who gets the recruiter’s role wants to find as many volunteers as possible, but the procedure can be challenging and intimidating. Recruiting volunteers is difficult because not everyone wants to work for kids and teach them about the love of Christ.

The ideas below will help you much with the recruitment of Children’s ministry volunteers.

Pray About it

Request God in prayer to reveal the kind of volunteers He wants you to approach working with kids. Ask potential leaders to pray about serving.

Don’t be Afraid to Ask

The metrics for rating student ministries are changing from drawing a crowd or large attendance. The focus nowadays is to help teens to experience their faith positively in a real, fun, warm, and welcoming environment. It is also connecting the teenagers with Godly adults to walk with them in the spiritual process.

Develop a Clear Mission, Vision, and Values

A clear mission statement will let volunteers determine the direction to head as a team. A vision statement reveals the way a destination will look. Clear values help the students to make proper decisions on reaching the final goal. People are competing with different commitments like gym, soccer…


Church sermons can be either the most interesting or the most tedious parts of a church service. Poorly done sermons can seem to drag on for hours as you watch the eyes of your congregation glaze over or wander around the room just waiting for it to end. On the other hand, great sermons can inspire reflection, action, and self-exploration within your congregation. While the meat of your sermon will mostly be reading from the text and some interpretation of the verses, a strong closing can hammer that point home. Here are three ways to close out a sermon.

Make it Personal

Young leaders working on worship might believe that their methods are key in inspiring many. They can be, but worship leaders can often get misguided by not taking advice from others.

Young leaders should be taking advice from older worship leaders to continue to have a career for a long time. If you’re a young leader, make sure you pay attention to these lessons.

Communication

If you see a younger audience at a church, chances are they are connecting to church leaders through music. However, this audience can quickly disappear.

God’s word promises that whatever we ask of him if we have faith, we’ll receive it. Why, then, do some prayers seemingly go unanswered?

It Isn’t God’s Plan for You

According to the Bible, God has a plan for each of us. If you’re praying faithfully, but you don’t receive an answer, the problem could lie in what you desire. Your goal might not fit into God’s purpose for your life. Proverbs 19:21 says, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
