We get a lot of questions through Church Answers and at the blog. Today, we take time to answer some of the unique ones we receive.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
  • If you’re not intentional about being outwardly focused, a small group can easily become a small clique.
  • Technology provides churches opportunities to reach and disciple people in ways that were previously not available.
  • It’s better to decide on a staffing structure and hire according to that rather than just hiring people and coming up with a structure after the fact.
The six questions we answer are:
  1. How do you do a psychiatric hospital visit?
  2. Can small groups become small cliques?
  3. What do I do if my receptionist/assistant (female) and I (male) are the only people who work in the church offices?
  4. What new media and technology is gaining traction in churches?
  5. What is text giving and how does it work?
  6. How do you staff in a multisite church?
