Church Policy Manual (Sample)

I hope you're having a Blessed day. I'm doing great. The doctors stated I should make a complete recovery from my neck surgery which I know is contributed to the thousands of Christian subscribers, friends, family, church family...I had praying for me. A very Special "Thank You" to everyone that prayed for me.

I'm very excited to have the Church Policy Manual sample, all the new church forms in this issue, and the announcement of the New Updated Shepherdbase that I just put on Special through end of October (below). If you have purchased Shepherdbase in the past and would like the new updated Shepherdbase simply contact me.

Church Policy Manual (Sample)

I know a lot of my visitors that I've been talking to are just starting a new church. I hope this Church Policy Manual sample below will be of some help to you.

The Church Policy Manual is a sample of policies and procedures you may wish to use as a guide in developing your church policy and procedure manual.

What is a Church Policy Manual?

A Church Policies and Procedures Manual is a reference guide to the functions and operations of the church. It lists routine duties and answers questions that arise as duties are performed. The procedure section gives step by step instructions for performing each task.

What Is A Policy?

A Policy is a statement that defines the authority required, boundaries set, responsibilities delegated, and guidelines, established to carry out a function of the church. In other words, policies tell who does the task, why it is done, and, under what conditions it is done. Policies answer questions that arise during unique circumstances.

Policies provide uniform treatment of a situation, thus achieving continuity of operation. Policies take personalities out of the picture. Decisions are based on the church policy not on the individual, and each situation is treated the same.

What Is A Procedure?

Procedures tell how a task is done. A detailed listing is made of each step taken to complete the process. A step by step description of the process is used to complete the job.

Pastor Appreciation Month Ideas

Yes, it's almost October! Time to get everything in order for a very important month of honoring your Pastor(s). I apologize, my surgery delayed me getting this out before now.

The Pastor Appreciation Month is in October every year. The entire month of October has been set aside for honoring our Pastor(s). This is an opportunity for us to rally around our Pastor(s) and let them know just how we appreciate and love them.

The second Sunday in October is set aside for Pastor Appreciation Day. This is normally when the churches has their special Pastor Appreciation Service, but any day in October will do.

The Pastor Appreciation Ideas below are five pages full of great ideas that will give your Pastor(s) love and appreciation that they so well deserve. Pastor(s) should be honored each and every day of the year, but especially in the month of October.
