    Focusing on “the ONE”

    Everything in ChurchOS revolves around reaching “the ONE”, as Jesus described in the 3 parables in Luke chapter 15. Every church is called to reach the lost and we are deeply passionate about seeing churches get laser-focused on finding the lost and bringing them into the Kingdom! Doug and Bart share how ChurchOS helps churches to not just have a passion to reach “the ONE”, but to be a church BUILT for “the ONE”.

    Are You Allocating Your Resources Appropriately?

    Are You Allocating Your Resources Appropriately?

    Every pastor and church leader loves seeing fruitful ministry happen, but there is no innocent yes – saying “Yes” to one ministry means saying “No” to something else. As ministry leaders, we have to be wise with how we invest our resources in order to see the greatest Kingdom impact. Bart and Doug talk about how ministry is a zero-sum proposition and how ChurchOS can help you to allocate your resources with greater focus and intentionality.

There’s no silver bullet thinking here, just timeless truths for church leadership in a timely medium for the modern ear. Listen up!
