The following are 5 FREE resources from my friends at Chemistry Staffing.  Make sure you take advantage of each of these.  They will make you a better-equipped leader as you navigate this COVID-19 ministry environment.

  1. 5 Models of Online Church – Chemistry Staffing will guide you through the five online ministry models that you have to choose from and help you determine which one is right for your church.  This FREE PDF details the five online ministry strategies/models every church will need to choose moving forward along with the five action steps every church should be taking in the next 30 days to prepare their post-COVID online ministry strategy.
  2. Staffing and Budgets for Online Church – When it comes to online ministry, you’ll need to consider two main things:
    1. Who will sit in the four key seats to drive your online strategy
    2. How you will budget for staff, technology, and online ministry going forward

    Both of these things present real challenges for most churches.  Chemistry Staffing put together a great resource that will walk you through the questions most church leaders are asking: How should I staff and budget for our church’s online ministry. This FREE 17-page strategy guide is available to download right now.

  3. Job Descriptions for Online Church – The team at Chemistry Staffing put together a free 40-page downloadable resource to help guide you through the key roles (either volunteer or paid staff) that you’ll need to properly lead your church’s online offerings going forward.  They’ve included sample job descriptions for Online Campus Pastors, Digital Discipleship Directors, Communications/Social Media Directors, and Online Weekend Services Producer.
  4. Staff Onboarding Playbook – The truth is, you can have the best search process on Earth, but if you fail to onboard your new staff member well, the chances of this becoming a long-term, healthy fit decline significantly from day one. One of the most forgotten portions of the search process is the onboarding plan. As you develop your search plan, take the time to intentionally develop an onboarding plan to be implemented after your candidate accepts the position. Being intentional to help walk through one of the most stressful times in someone’s life will build a solid foundation that will pay huge benefits in the season to come.  This free resource will help.
  5. Staff Transition Playbook – The way that you respond to times of staff transition directly impacts the season ahead. This free Staff Transition Playbook will walk you through the three biggest challenges you’ll encounter when a staff person exits your team, giving you step-by-step instructions on how to ensure your current staff member exits well and your next staff member is set up for success. The team at Chemistry Staffing will help you identify blind spots in leadership, gaps in your ministry, and issues that need to be addressed in your day-to-day operations… all of which are key to a healthy transition. This free PDF will help you navigate your transition successfully.
