Administrative Tool Box Book: The Puppet Factory

You have been invited to become a part of the ministry staff at your church. Excitedly you put your Bible, pad of paper and ink pen into your carry bag and off you go to the first staff meeting.

“What is your personal ministry philosophy? What are you going to do to expand or improve the existing ministry programs for children? How are you going to address the special needs of the Smith’s handicapped child or that obnoxious sixth grade boy? We need more help in Mr. Jones’ second grade class and childcare for the adult Bible Study groups. Oh, you have an $8,000 budget limit and we need a detailed report on how you are going to use this money by next week!”
