EPISODE 024: 8 Things to Never Forget When Creating Your Experience (Part Two)


Show Notes:

This week on the podcast, I give more four things to never forget when creating your experience. These are things to keep at the forefront of your mind and your project list. What I mean when I say “experience” is your worship services, your classes, your events, your Vacation Bible School, your conferences. Anything where you are creating an environment where people are engaging in worship or coming together in a large group setting. These principles can apply to church media staff and volunteers.

In last week’s episode, I gave four things to remember when creating your experience:

1. Never Forget: Ministry is hard.

2. Never Forget: You are creating an experience.

3. Never Forget: You must care more about who your team is becoming than what they do on your team.

4. Never Forget: To help create a clear and welcoming On-Ramp for New Volunteers.

This week, I give you four more things to never forget when creating experiences at your church:

8. Never Forget: To raise up leaders and multiply yourself.
