Beg, Borrow & Steal
I used to think I had to create everything, build everything, write everything… every system, every job description, every evaluation, etc. Somehow I thought I was shirking my responsibilities as a leader in not creating these uniquely for our organization.
But I’ve learned the beauty and freedom of begging, borrowing and stealing.
There are so many great organization and great churches who have already developed most of the tools, systems and processes you need to run your church or organization. And most of them offer this stuff free or for a small charge. The big guys have fancy networks and websites where you can get all this stuff but I’ve also found most churches willing to share their resources if you just ask.
Here are a couple of great ones that I use all the time:
That’s the beauty of the business of ministry… there should be no competition in this game. Share best practices so that you can spend the majority of your time on the front lines of ministry.
Go ahead! Beg, Borrow & Steal!
