Sometimes pastors reach out to us for help because something about the organizational structure just feels off.
Through the Staffing & Structure Review, we help you position your ministry team to execute at its highest potential.
Within two weeks your ministry consultant will provide a summary of the structure and core actions that were identified from the previous meeting. Since you started this work together, there won’t be any surprises. You’ll have a comprehensive plan to put into action.
One of the most common lids to growth in a church is staff structure. You’re perfectly structured to get the results you’re getting today. If you don’t like the results you’re getting, it might be time for a change. But how can you know? Here are a few indicators:
Leaders have too many direct reports.
Typically senior staff can manage 5-8 direct reports. When your span of care goes beyond that, it’s time to change things.
Lines of communication are stuck.
When internal communication begins to slow down and information doesn’t flow quickly between departments or layers of the organization, it may be time to restructure.
Decision making is frustrating.
Often structure can be a significant lid to decision-making and the growth of a church. When you have to check with multiple committees, teams, stakeholders, and then recheck again before taking a vote, it might be time to restructure.
You're not making progress towards a clear vision.
If vision and strategies are clear and you’re still not seeing movement, you may not have the right people in the right roles.
