Earlier this year, I posted the podcast series, “Build Community, Fund Ministry” in an attempt to explore how leaders can systematically leverage technology to inform and validate ministry decisions. The net effect of making informed ministry decisions is the ability to consistently move people to deeper levels of engagement interpersonally and spiritually which results in spiritual formation and the generous offering of time, talent, and treasure.
Out of that podcast series came the idea for my latest e-book, Getting Disciple Making Right. This resource outlines why churches leaders should see technology, particularly the church management system, as a partner and trusted advisor when determining next steps, future investments, and assessing ministry impact. Church leaders are responsible for cultivating the resources God provides through the people in the pew. Too much is at stake to “fly blind.”
I was proud to partner with Steve Caton from Church Community Builder to produce this material. I hope you’ll take a few moments to read it online or download it for another time. It is possible to move beyond your “gut” and uncover what’s working, what’s not, and how transformational your ministry really is. The concepts presented in this book will challenge you to think differently about disciple making and offer you a path to understand the intangibles and the tools to ensure your ministry is fulfilling the Great Commission at full capacity.
Once you’ve had a chance to read it, I’d welcome your thoughts in the comments below.
