I would make announcements on stage and then people would come to me and ask a question that was clearly announced an hour ago ! How frustrating!
First I blamed them. Then I started to wonder… could it be the way I’m doing announcements?
There’s a lot to think about when it comes to our weekly gatherings - facilities, parking lots, volunteers, etc. We consider where people will sit, what they’ll hear, and how things look.
One area to consider, are the details that make a difference to parents from the time they enter your parking lot to the time they leave it.
The problem in ministry is the same problem in business. We aren’t addressing the problem we are solving.
