They are going to be things that we have used and found helpful in our own ministry. Some may be helpful, some not. We just hope that you go into Monday with the same energy and focus as you would a Sunday.
Over the past few years, Rev. Micah, in collaboration with her father, Rev. Mike Hunter, have been invited to give several education seminars on administrative issues facing ministers and churches.
We both feel very passionately that administration IS ministry. When one supports the everyday compassionate ministry of the church with administration of space, people and time, it is a WIN!
In an effort to better support those in ministry, we hope to use this blog as a resource. We will post informative links, resources, articles and some of our own thoughts.
We encourage you to follow this blog, comment on post, and share questions or concerns with us. We hope that this will be a dialogue in the area of administrative ministry.
