Maximize Your Church By Maximizing Your Systems (Part 3 of 4)

In last week’s second post of this blog series, I defined a system as any ongoing process that Saves You Stress, Time, Energy, and Money, and continues to produce results.

Healthy running systems in your church can have a tremendous impact in positioning your church to have the greatest impact possible, both on the people within it and on the community where you minister.

I contend that the church is made up of eight systems. Here are the first four:

(1) the worship planning system,
(2) the evangelism system,
(3) the assimilation system,
(4) the small-groups system,

Join me next week when I share the remaining four church systems.
