As I’m sure you know, Easter is just a few weeks away. In fact, this year, it’s early. Easter happens the last week of March and that means that church leaders across the country are faced with a shorter time to prepare and less time to ramp up.
The good news is that there are tons of resources out there that can make it a lot easier to have a great Easter. These online resources take the guesswork out and shorten the span of time that it will take you to prepare and get everyone ready to reach the people in your community that will either attend church for the first time or come back to church after being gone for a long period of time.
At Church Leader Strategies, we’ve found 5 websites that have resources that will not only help you get prepared, but they will also help you put in place some strategies that will lead to growth. From leadership training to giving to volunteers, these websites have what you need to grow this Easter.
Ministry Pass – This site focuses on preaching and promotion and has everything you need to elevate those two areas to the next level. They have sermon series that are ready to use as well as resources that will help you get the word about your upcoming sermons. The graphics that you find at Ministry Pass are excellently done and there are even some Easter specific downloads that will help you grow this year.
Ministry Library – If you’re looking for leadership development, you need to look no further than Ministry Library. This resource’s aim is to take the top leadership development, management, and ministry books and create training videos and downloads for you and your team to help you grow in your leadership. Easter is a key time where your church needs well-trained leaders and Ministry Library is THE way to get them there.
The Rocket Company – There’s a ton of resources here that focus on things like giving, volunteers, and preaching. But, The Rocket Company’s latest endeavor is in the area of worship. The goal of this resource is to take your church’s worship from “average to awesome.” They offer monthly videos, practical downloads, and a members forum where you can collaborate with other church leaders across the country. On Easter your visitors will be looking for a worship experience that is excellent…and The Rocket Company can help you get there!
Church Fuel – When you’re needing help with systems for your church that lead to growth, Church Fuel is the best resource out there. Their claim of “insanely practical” is completely accurate and the launch of their new coaching system called Church Fuel One is based off of best practices that they learned while visiting dozens of churches all over the U.S. Church systems are the secret to sustainable church growth this Easter and Church Fuel has it figured out.
Church Leader Strategies – Of course we would be missing something if we didn’t list our website. Based off the motivation to help churches get better at engaging volunteers and retaining visitors, Church Leader Strategies has resources that will help you get better in both of these areas this week. From the free blog articles with practical information to the downloads on church promotions and finances, we’ve got resources that aren’t bogged down in theory but are based on a foundation of practicality. As you plan for Easter, don’t forget to grab a couple of the resources here.
