Administrating Your Church: The Basics of Supervising Staff

Seminaries and schools of religion do not focus much attention on equipping students for the practical task of supervising, coordinating, and motivating staff and teams. As a result, clergy either learn on the job, or never master the requisite skills, and therefore fail to get the most out of their support teams and ministry tenure. Alban Institute senior consultant Susan Beaumont offered a workshop for Indiana congregations through the Center for Congregations, an institute that identifies and  provides resources to help Indiana congregations respond to their challenges and opportunities, to help leaders explore supervisory tools and techniques. The resource list she prepared for the program is archived on the Center's website. You might also appreciate our feature articles, "Managing Conflict Constructively," "Best Resources for Church Administration," and "Best Resources for Church Leaders."  Also explore the links under our Leadership tab.
