Goals and Values Setting for Ministries
Excerpt from NLWI’s Worship Ministry Blueprints
Similar to a vision statement, compiling a list of values is important so the people involved in your ministry understand how they will be guided along the processes and the rules in place for each individual. Values also help determine the boundaries within the ministry, goals, and ideals. Additionally, values can help solidify the vision among your team.
A few of Sample Church’s Values:
We value authentic and engaging praise on the platform (Psalm 40:3)
Make time to grow together as worshipers
Strive to internalize our music
Try to dress in a way not to distract from worship
Evaluate how well we engage and lead
Strive to anticipate possible changes as the Holy Spirit leads and prepare when possible
We value musical excellence and creativity (Psalm 33:3)
Plan and rehearse weeks in advance
Play with a click track on most songs
Use a loop on some songs
Create our own arrangements of some songs
Feature songs we write from time to time
Rehearse the band and choir weekly and worship leaders before they sing
Rehearse entire service on Sunday AMs w/all service personalities & tech
We value diversity of music and leaders on the platform (Romans 12:10)
Mix up choir leading, ensembles leading, and individuals leading
Play/sing various styles of music
Have a creative and unusual service each month
We value pouring into people in our ministry.
Mentor all we feel led to
Offer training opportunities for all leadership levels within our funnel.
