Effective Church Human Resources Management
I pray you are having a Blessed Day. I know some small churches do not have employees, but there are a lot that do so I've included tips on Human Resources Management along with free HR forms, Valentines Day Sweetheart Award Certificate, Wedding Ceremony Programs and Data Backup CD Inserts.
Effective Church Human Resources Management
Effective Church Human Resources ManagementManaging the Human Resources Department for your church or organization requires a knowledge and understanding of what it takes to manage, motivate, develop, recognize and reward employees. The responsibility of the Human Resources Management also requires planning of HR, staffing, performance management training and development, compensation and industrial relations.
Successful churches or organizations are those who have effectively managed change by turning strategy into action, managing processes efficiently, and being able to max employee and volunteer contribution and commitment.
Churches are characterized by both human (organizational) and Godly (spiritual) qualities. Because of its unique dual nature, the churches usually require both spiritual and organizational management.
There is sometimes a resistance when you label church management for Human Resources or other departments as a business function, but when people and money are involved there has to be structure and sound business decisions to ensure that the resources are managed and used appropriately.
The church should always strive to be much mor ethan just the ordinary not-for-profit organization, but we must take advantage of the best practices and procedures available to us. Simply weave them into your mission as servants and offer the best ministry you possibly can in the name of Jesus Christ.
Taking special care of your church staff team by using guidelines is more important than you think. Assemble a staff committee to facilitate these guidelines to be approved through management. Leaders should recognize the need for their employees to work in a safe, healthy environment with adequate benefits if possible and clear procedures of how to address work-related concerns by exhibiting qualities of love, care and respect that is pleasing to God. Churches rely a lot on volunteer support and they need a structured management process to help recruit, place, train and manage volunteer help. Volunteers are an asset and off-set costs of paying employees so provide your volunteers with a customer-friendly experience and this will help grow a strong volunteer program.
Become educated on state and federal laws regarding human resources. Don't bring unwanted scrutiny by operating in ways outside of legal parameters.
Most importantly, make sure you have the oversight you need necessary to create guidelines on paper and at the same time making sure they are followed in practice. Believe me, you do not want an attorney telling you that your policies were not followed.
Facebook for FreeChurchForms.com & Shepherdbase
I have finally joined the Facebook social network and created pages for FreeChurchForms.com and Shepherdbase. I feel this was very important to help make it easier for all of subscribers, visitors and Shepherdbase (Church Membership Database) customers to be able to ask me questions or post comments.
I've been blessed to have the opportunity to help thousands upon thousands of churches by giving away church forms, certificates...but I feel that Facebook will be a great tool with your help by clicking the "Like" button to help many more churches and people in these stressful times we are living in.
Easter Worship Service InvitationsI have two different Easter Worship Service Invitation templates below for your Easter Worship Service These Easter Invitations will be a great tool to use to help pull visitors into your church for your special Easter Worship Service.
These free invitations are easy to download, customize and print and hand out to your church members to hand out to their friends and family or even complete strangers to ensure your great Easter Worship Service turnout.
The Easter Church Worship Service is usually one of the highest church attendances of the entire year, and many of the people who come may not even know Jesus as their personal Savior. Is your church prepared for this Easter Worship Service and the extra attendance?
You can help prepare your church for the Easter Worship Service by considering maybe renting or borrowing offsite parking if your parking lot is not big enough and then shuttle leaders and members to the church via van or golf cart. You can also request extra prayer for service, recruit extra greeters and ushers for newcomers, etc.
