Workshops for Ministry Leaders
Search and Find: Hiring the Right One
The hiring process is not about finding “the one”, it’s about finding “the right ones.” In this workshop, you’ll learn from top search consultants at Ministry Architects how to assemble a search team, network to find candidates, conduct meaningful interviews, and objectively evaluate applicants.
We’ve all been there. Scrambling at the last minute to have enough warm bodies to make Sunday, or an event, happen. This workshop will give you everything you need to go from barely scraping by to a full volunteer roster. You will learn a proven, six-step plan that is guaranteed to help you fill those volunteer roles.
Finding Your Fit
If you’re a ministry leader searching for a new job, this workshop is for you. Hear from our very own search specialists what churches are looking for and what causes them to turn candidates away. Learn why some positions will be a great fit for you, and some will not. You’ll also walk away with best practices for resumes, communication expectations from search teams, and stand-out interview skills to help you land your next great fit.
Staying for Good
One of the most fascinating paradoxes of ministry is this: Those who are prepared for how hard ministry is, often and mysteriously, are those who discover it’s not as grueling as they thought. After working with thousands of ministry leaders, we’ve discovered the habits and mindsets of the people who stay in it for the long haul – and love it. This workshop is loaded with practical tips for doing ministry with more joy, more hope, and more endurance.
Building a Sustainable Ministry
Spend time with Ministry Architects discovering which facets* of our behind-the-scenes work truly help a ministry thrive over the long haul. Participants will learn how to instill these foundational patterns into the fabric of any ministry, regardless of its model, and leave with actionable steps that get immediate results. *This workshop focuses on volunteers, communication, databases, hospitality, and facilities.
Building a Ministry for the Whole Family
Creating a healthy, sustainable ministry for families has never been more important, yet many churches miss some of the key elements that are needed in this process. In this seminar, we walk you through how to focus on the building blocks that are necessary when constructing, what we like to call, a “whole family ministry.”
Workshops for Your Church
Energizing Your Family’s Spiritual Life
Knowing that the Bible places a large portion of responsibility on parents for the spiritual growth of our children leaves many of us feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. In this workshop, you will learn practical steps that can help your whole family experience a growing, vibrant faith together, without making the time you spend with one another feel contrived or awkward.
Creating an Intimate Marriage
Whether you’re engaged, newly married, struggling, or have been happily married for decades, this workshop has something for you. You will leave with practical tools, ideas, and strategies for building a relationship that is rich, healthy, and prepared to navigate the journey of life with your partner.
Understanding Your Teen
Parenting teens is difficult. In this workshop, you will gain useful perspective on what is happening in your teen’s life during these years and how to keep communication open in your relationship. You’ll hear tried and true hacks for having difficult conversations, navigating control issues, and energizing your teen’s spiritual life.
Some people seem to exude joy. You’ve seen them. We have discovered that for them, joy is a choice. For them, joy is a decision. Their joy is not dependent on the conditions around them. Their delight flows from three teachable habits that create a wellspring of joy that any of us can draw on no matter what’s going on around us.
