I understand. It’s difficult to lead a congregation. Trying to communicate effectively to a group is a large task since so many people want so many different things. You’re also guiding them spiritually and chiding them for veering from the spiritual path. So much to do, so little time to do it.
Here are 3 leadership things to consider doing differently. You may be impressed with the many benefits you’ll enjoy later!
• Promote less.
Church communication often becomes all about promoting events and opportunities in the church. Don’t lose sight of engaging with a broader approach. Engagement requires experiencing life together and authentically walking with your congregation.
Loving them, guiding them, correcting them. And using events to reinforce those important things.
No one likes a constant push of promotion! Instead think more like a television show: 80 percent entertainment and stories with only 20 percent advertising and promotion. People will feel closer to you and listen more if they like “hanging out” with you.
