Welcome to the Seminary of Hard Knocks! This podcast is designed to help ministry leaders make confident decisions with clear purpose.

I’ve heard leaders in small churches say it before: “We’re too small to need any complicated systems.” Not true. Laying the groundwork now for the future makes growth more of a joy than a job down the road.

In This Episode:

  • Four systems every church needs regardless of size:
    • Mission, Vision, and Values Systems
    • Leadership System with Job Descriptions (and sometimes an Org Chart)
    • Communications Systems for Internal and External Messaging
    • Assimilation System for On-Boarding Guests and New Staff
  • Why your website is extremely important


Never hear your people say “I didn’t know about that event” again! Write great all-church emails that get opened and read with this checklist!
