Strategies for effective church management

Equipping future church leaders for the crucial tasks of leadership often finds its way into the seminary curriculum, but preparing those students for church management seldom gets the attention it deserves. In part, that might be due to a failure to distinguish the tasks: leadership is about inspiring and motivating; management is the task of planning, budgeting, staffing, organizing, and coordinating. Without good church management skills, leadership quickly runs into trouble when the resources and coordination that can channel motivated activity into meaningful outcomes doesn't materialize. To help fill the gap, Faith & Leadership, an online offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, published a page of resources listing previous F&L articles that focus on management tasks and skills. For more insight and perspective, see our article, "Best Resources for Church Administration." You might also appreciate "Ten Essential Skills the Next Generation of Religious Leaders will Need."
