Here’s my challenge to you, equip your team as if you are leaving. Everything you do should be able to be done by someone else. Granted, you may not have another guitar player or lead singer, but all the more reason to start looking for someone who has potential in your congregation. Many of the tasks you do yourself can be learned and done by someone else. Tasks such as early morning setup, order of service details, song selection, running a rehearsal, social media, post service tasks, and more can be taught to a trusted volunteer. You will probably find they have fresh ideas to make what you’ve been doing better, easier, and even more efficient. I also recommend documenting things such as vision, mission, login credentials, wiring diagrams, and more if you haven’t already. These would be important if you left, so they are important today. Each situation will be unique based on your church, volunteers, technical setup, etc. No matter the circumstance though, it is crucial to train leaders. In my research I found this quote, “you shouldn’t be doing anything unless someone else is watching you and learning how to do it too.” I’ve started to take this approach in my parenting and I know I will take it into my next ministry role.
