Worship Planning and Church Revitalization

If you recall from last week, we talked about how important intentional worship planning is for your church. This week we take a step further and are honored to share a podcast that we did with Dr. Thom Rainer recently.

Tom Metz, the founder of WORSHIPPLANNING.COM, who is now part of the Cool Solutions Group team, joined us to add context to this topic.

The podcast features the following:

  • Regardless of the size of your church, you need to be planning your worship services well.
  • More people than just the pastor and music leader are involved in planning a worship service.
  • Your church building should help your church better fulfill its mission of making disciples.
  • Regardless of the size of your building or congregation, planning is necessary.

Worship Leaders Have a Choice

Finally…worship leaders of churches of any and every shape, size, style and methodologies have an option when considering the right tool to help them best manage their worship services. For as long back as I can remember, there has been one dominant option for worship leaders to use…and you know who I am referring to.

They are the 800 pound gorilla.  They clearly have market dominance.  They have set a standard and watermark for many aspects of service planning.

But…now you have an option.

We are honored and excited to announce that Cool Solutions Group and eSPACE have acquired WorshipPlanning.com to add to our suite of intentional planning tools. With this acquisition, coupled with some significant enhancements and added features, worship leaders have a viable alternative to the incumbent. We are firm believers that competition is the basis for better products for the market…in this case for your church.

Check out all the features you get with your WorshipPlanning account…all starting at only $25/month for up to 5 planners (those that need to actually  plan services) and UNLIMITED Helpers (think of helpers as your choir, praise team, techs etc.).  You will be blown away!

Worship Requires Planning

Back in the mid 1990’s, I was a “remunerated volunteer” at a large church in Charlotte leading the instrumental music…a role I thoroughly enjoyed. During that tenure, which was about 12 years, the Minister of Music position was in transition on 2 occasions. During those times, the Senior Pastor called on me to lead the choir, lead congregational singing and prepare the seasonal concerts and events. BTW…this was all PRE-TRIPLETS!

Fulfilling this role as Interim Ministry of Music was a great experience for me. I had the opportunity to work side-by-side with senior staff and volunteers. The pastor and I would meet each week to plan the “order of service” including sitting at a restaurant with our hymnals out to select songs. I would then plan a month or more of choir anthems and call to worship as well as instrumental specials.

While I really enjoyed that time, looking back I have to confess that I did not do a really good job on being intentional with planning the worship service. Sure, we randomly picked 2-3 hymns, a special music component and the like. But…was it really intentional? I don’t think so. We checked a box and then moved on.

Today I see the need for far more intentionality and planning. Here are just a few examples:

  • Which instrumentals are needed and who can participate?
  • What if one of them cancels, who is next in line?
  • What is the order of service?
  • Has the timing been considered for each component?
  • What are the transitions between components?
  • Do we have key changes?
  • When do the musicians, singers or choir leave the platform?
  • When do the come back up?
  • Who from the tech team is available?
  • Do the slides flow well and match the order of service?
  • Do we have ushers assigned?
  • Etc!

I am sure you are asking why a “facility guy” is making a big deal out of this. Actually it is pretty simple. I am a huge proponent of “FACILITY STEWARDSHIP” and one of the key aspects of being an intentional facility steward is in the proper utilization of the facilities God has entrusted to us. That includes, among many other things, the planning of our worship services.

“But we are a small church, why do we need to plan?”

Here is a great quote from one of our Technology Specialist, Tom Metz, regarding that question:

Being intentional is important for every church and ministry size. Planning is the real world manifestation of being intentional. When you’re going on a long trip, do you say “I don’t need to plan my route because I drive small car”?

Get the point?

I have one final word: P-L-A-N.

Are Mergers Changing the Church Landscape?

.
I can tell you from our experience, that Church Mergers are definitely changing the landscape of the church world. From planning opportunities, to revitalization, to combining resources or rescuing a church that is in decline.

I am honored to have 2 friends that are the pioneers in describing this movement. Jim Tomberlin (THE Multisite guy and co author of “Church Locality: New Rules for Church Buildings in a Multisite, Church Planting, and Giga-Church Worldwith me) and Dr. Warren Bird of ECFA wrote a book a few years ago called “Better Together: Making Church Mergers Work“. I have recommended these a number of times to numerous churches and they been road maps for many that were/are considering a merger.

Jim and Warren are working on some updates to the data they originally provided and could use your input.  Below is a post from Jim that will describe this further and provide you links to take a survey.

PLEASE help us with this research…and thank you Jim and Warren for your ministry!

By Jim Tomberlin

I stumbled into my first church merger experience accidentally in 2003 (and if you have a merger experience, I’ll end this short article asking you to share it).

Looking for a place to plant a regional campus for a Chicago suburban church, I came across a school in a great location. But another church was already meeting there. I left my card, and told them that if that church ever leaves, call me.

I got a call, but it wasn’t from the school. The church phoned and said, “We don’t have a pastor. Can we join you?’”

I responded, “I’m not sure that’s a good idea.”

I tried to dissuade them, but they insisted.

Eventually, I gave in. With 150 church members from my church combined with the 150 people already in the school we relaunched as a new church. Fifteen years later it has grown to 2,000 regular attendees.

When I went back for the 10th anniversary, of the original 150, about 125 were still there. They told me it was the greatest thing that ever could have happened to them.

In 2011 I co-authored a book with Warren Bird, Better Together: Making Church Mergers Work, about the emerging church merger trend that I had experienced firsthand (and maybe you have too!).

We described how these new kinds of mission-driven mergers were different than the survival-based mergers of the past. We also observed that many of these mergers were an unintended but positive consequence of the multisite church movement.

Since then we have seen an explosion of all kinds of church mergers beyond multisite outcomes. More church leaders are seeing mergers as a church-plant strategy, pastor-search strategy, succession strategy, community transformation strategy and denominationally driven revitalization and replant strategy.

A decade later, with a seismic culture shift in church attendance and changing attitudes towards local churches, it’s time to do another nation-wide, comprehensive survey on church mergers to capture the trends in these new developments.

TAKE THE CHURCH MERGER SURVEY!

If your church has experienced a merger–or unsuccessfully attempted a merger in the past–would you give us your take on our church merger survey?

In partnership with The Unstuck Group, Leadership Network, ECFA, Fortress Press, and others, we are offering several incentives for church leaders to take our survey–and to forward it to others who have a church merger experience. Plus we’re planning a free webinar to survey participants to reveal and discuss the initial findings from the survey.

Just go to this link and tell us your thoughts about mergers. As one of the many ways we’ll say thanks, we’ll also email you a summary of what everyone else said.

Thank you,
Jim Tomberlin, lead author of Better Together: Making Church Mergers Work

I Will Get Right On That

Admit it, if you are responsible for the maintenance in a facility you have said this before, probably more than once. The problem with that phrase and our prevalence in using it is that we are not going to get right on it. In fact, we forget that which we agreed to do by the time we get to the office because we have said it three more times to three other folks during the walk. 

It is in our nature to try and accommodate others, yet as stewards we have many competing items on our time. When it comes to maintenance it means that things get missed. What is one to do? Well, we suggest utilizing a digital solution. Work Order Management software. 

For many of you, you will recognize that we have Work Order Management Software, and many of you use it. I would be remiss if I didn’t suggest you click the image below this article and check it out if you haven’t already. However, I do not want this to be an ad, that is not what CFMS is about. 

Why use a work order management software solution? Things will get lost, forgotten, or simply ignored. Not because we don’t care, it is because we get overwhelmed. Here are our “Top Ten” traits of a great maintenance software system.

1) Maintenance software will allow us to create a centralized database that helps organize our preventative maintenance and “pop -up” maintenance needs.  

2) Maintenance software will allow you to collect and distribute all the information necessary for the task. When creating a work order you should be able to attach documentation, photos, etc. There should be a place that allows for the requestor and the one performing work to provide comments. While the work is in progress, the software should send out updates when status changes. And finally, the software should store the information on the work when it is completed. 

3) Maintenance software will provide the ability to input and track all aspects performed to your equipment. At some point, the amount of time spent fixing an item will exceed what is reasonable and replacement should be considered. Maintenance software should assist that by providing a repair and maintenance history of each piece. 

4) Tracking inventory needs and items related to maintenance should be a feature. As work is completed, the system will allow you to automatically update the remaining stock on hand of flappers, or filters, or anything else you need to track. Many systems will allow you to be alerted when you reach your reorder threshold. 

5) A robust work order system allows you to communicate directly through the system with outside vendors to accept, perform, and complete work on or in your facility. This allows for the continued consolidated record-keeping for your maintenance activities. 

6) A great maintenance software will allow for the creation of multiple departments or sections to help distribute the work to the appropriate people. Being able to get the right info to the right person quickly helps complete tasks quickly. 

7) If different people or departments need to be part of a maintenance project, a good maintenance software will allow you to assign the appropriate parts of a job to the appropriate people. 

8) A maintenance software will provide multiple methods for work to be submitted. This ensures that more info is submitted, which leads to…

9) A robust maintenance software will allow for workflow to be setup to meet the needs of the facility. Not all requests will need to be sent on however, so there must be a mechanism that allows for work to be prioritized or declined.

10) Finally, a robust program will allow you to automatically schedule preventative maintenance tasks and create the notices for you.

These are the top ten things a software geared towards maintenance should do, and there are other things to look for as well. Ultimately, the worth of the software will be determined by the deployment and adoption of the software. It is a tool that needs to be considered, and it is not just for the “big” churches. If you are not already using one, check out everyone you can. The cost of the software is offset by the amount of time, effort, and energy you save in doing what you are called to do. And yes, I would be happy to show you ours if you are interested.

Now Go Clean Your Room

Maybe it was just me, but I seemed to hear that quite a bit growing up. Somehow, no matter how many times I cleaned my room, I needed to do it again in a week or so. In our facilities, cleanliness is a big deal. When a guest arrives, or even a long-time member, a dirty facility gives an impression…a negative one. It makes people wonder, “If they don’t care about how clean the church facility is, then why would they care about me?” 

I think we can all agree that we need to clean. What isn’t always intuitive is what it will take to accomplish that. Fortunately, you have been given a resource to help you with that. In the CFMS Toolbox you have a Cleaning Calculator. This spreadsheet is there to help you determine what you need to clean your facility, as well as helping you to identify if you are understaffed. 

Let’s dig into this resource a bit. To start, I want to look at the Staffing Calculator part of the tool. This is where you input your current staffing availability for each week. Many times, we assume that our staff has more available hours to clean than they do. Consider this, every time you ask your facility team to help move a package, show someone the way, open a door, reset a room…these all take away from cleaning time. You must be realistic as to how many hours an individual can clean. Many times, we find that facility departments are understaffed because they require too much non-cleaning task time from their team. You may find hiring a general maintenance and support team member is more cost effective and helps you have a cleaner facility. If you are unsure of how much is spent on “other duties”, start with 30% (.3). That equates to around 20 minutes of every hour doing non-cleaning tasks during an eight-hour shift. When you start plugging in your staffing level, you may find that your 40 hour a week custodian realistically has 28 or so hours to clean. 

Once you have taken care of the staffing, move on over to the Room Calculations. This is where I hope you have another resource handy, specifically a document that provides critical facility details regarding all your space. If not, stay tuned as we are developing a resource for that. The Cleaning Calculator is set up to look at certain types of rooms. If you are looking facility-wide at restrooms, for example, you would need to input the total number of each fixture type in that section. When you do, it will tell you how long it would take to clean all the restrooms in your facility once. If you have all the needed data on a spreadsheet, it is easy to take sections of the facility and calculate cleaning time for each area. It is important to provide all the requested information on each room type if you want the most realistic number. 

Once you have those two tabs correctly filled out, you can see what it will take and how close you are with sufficient staffing to maintain a clean facility. With this resource you can create cleaning areas for your team, figure staffing models, and even look for ways to become more efficient with your staffing times. So, what does a real-world example look like? 

Here you go:

Facility A has a 16,000 sq-ft facility. 5000 sq-ft sanctuary with carpet, fixed pews, 6 restrooms, 12 classrooms, 2 offices, and a kitchen. They currently employ 1 full-time (40 hours/week) facility person, and 1 part-time (25 hours/week) facility person. Each person on the facility team spends 75% of their time cleaning and 25% on other tasks. 

Total cleaning hours available each week (combined): 48.75. Total cleaning time needed to clean the entire facility one time: 19.42 hours. This facility has a surplus of 29.33 cleaning hours…assuming they only use the facility once. But what happens if they clean the facility 3 times a week? That takes 58.26 to clean, meaning they are short available cleaning hours by 9.51.  As you start to consider how often you really use your facility, and how clean you want it, this resource will help you set a realistic target for staffing so that you are able to have the cleanest facility possible. Let us know how it worked for you.

Resources are for Wimps

You probably just disagreed with that title. At least you tell yourself that you do. Unfortunately, talk is cheap my friends. We tend to say and think a great many things…but our true feelings are always borne out in our actions. 

This week we are going to dive into the wonderful world of…resources! If you are a member of CFMS you have access to a great many resources. If you are not a member…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR…it is free. We will highlight many of them, even provide some detailed usage instructions. However, before we get to that, let’s talk a bit about how we tend to use resources.

Many times, we seek out resources when someone tells us about it. We’ve mentioned previously about time in the church facility world (spoiler alert, there is never enough).  So being told about the next coolest thing is the main way we get the information. Our vendors show up to show us the latest and greatest, we hear about something in a blog, we attend a conference and see something…you get the idea. At this point, all these resources share a common trait. They are utterly useless if all you do is acknowledge their existence. 

It is safe to say that we are advancing technology-wise in many ways. With that comes the ability to disburse information via methods unheard of merely 20 years ago. From eBooks to webinars to interactive forums…we can share and learn just about anything. The hard part is taking that knowledge and applying it. It is necessary to do more than digest, it must be put into use or it is just “empty calories”; and just like empty calories cause us to be inefficient, gathering knowledge and not applying it leads to inefficiencies as well. Those inefficiencies lead to ministerial opportunities lost. 

So, what do we do? First, we must consider what type of resource we need and when. Remember, there are tons out there, you do not need all of them at once. Consider your biggest concern right now…now that you have it, find three resources that address it and are the easiest for you to process. From those resources develop an implementation plan to fix (or at least attempt to fix) that one issue. A staircase consists of many steps, but it still is the easiest to put one foot on one step at a time. 

Second, take the time to evaluate the success of the process gleaned from the resources on that first concern. Get it right. Do not worry about all the other concerns that are still there at this point….it has been messed up for a while, a bit longer is not the end of the world. Unless it is a life-safety issue, and then that is always going to be the top concern. 

Third, take the time to share the resources and the process you learned from it with your supervisors and your peers. It is always good to let others know what is going on, and it will make it easier for you when you tackle the next concern. Your team will understand why you are looking for helpful resources. 

Fourth, develop a system to categorize and store resources as you collect them; make them available for future research. When you find sources, many times you can sign up for mailing lists. They will keep sending them during a time you do not need them, so store them so you are ready to utilize your library when the need arises again. 

Fifth, repeat steps one through four as necessary for your concerns. Developing your own resource/research library can make your life easier. Again, the crux of the matter is you must take that knowledge and use it for it to be effective. If you need to try and figure out how long it should take to clean a space, find a calculator that can help (I bet you can guess where you can find one!). Want to be a better energy steward, learn the ways how (Webinar anyone?). I can almost guarantee that there is a resource to assist you in any issue you may face as a facility steward. And if someone took the time to figure out a way to make your life more efficient, why not take them up on it?

What is up with USER Based Software Pricing?

There have been a lot of new players enter the Facility Management Software space serving churches. Some of these products are actually really good. Some have REALLY cool features. But…most charge per user per month. I just don’t get it!

OK…I get the “business” reason why. The more users, the potential increase in bandwidth and data storage for servers. But to me, a USER BASED subscription penalizes a church for growing numerical or staffing. If a church has 50,000 SF and they double in attendance…but doesn’t add more square footage, they have to increase staff to maintain a building that now has more utilization leading to more cleaning and wear and tear.

When we launched eSPACE (MINISTReSPACE in 2008), the most popular event and facility scheduling software on the market was Event U. At that time, and even to today, they charge by “resource” which is kin to USER BASED pricing. If you added 25 more tables or 5 summer interns, etc. you pay more per month. That just feels mercenary to me.

That is why eSPACE Event Scheduler and Work Order Management has UNLIMITED users. Our pricing is based on elements such as the number of schedule-able spaces, number of fixed assets and the number of locations (think multi-site). I really wrestle why we should charge more for users. We WANT churches to have as much buy-in and utilization as they desire. We have found that organizations that have dozens or even hundreds of users are operating much more effectively and efficient by having more people with access to the software.

In the Work Order realm, there are some really good software options. I have been impressed by Akita Box, UpKeep and FMX. Dude Solutions also has some interesting features, but most of those solutions implement a USER BASED subscription price. Also, eSPACE is the ONLY facility management software that:

  1. Church centric…over 95% of our subscribers are churches
  2. Developed by church facility specialists for facility professionals…not just a cool tool for a market segment that needs serving
  3. Provides a free Life Cycle Calculator whether you subscribe to the paid subscriptions or not
  4. Offers integration with your HVAC, Door Access and Digital Signage
  5. Integrates with approximately 15 of the most utilized ChMS tools (Church Management Software)
  6. Offers a FREE online community focused on all things Church Facility Management.
  7. Offers onsite Facility Condition Assessments and deferred maintenance identification

OK…I am clearly biased.  But I am 100% convinced that the eSPACE solution is the BEST for any and every church!

Let us know if you want to explore how eSPACE and Cool Solutions Group can assist your organization to be efficient, effective and intentional with the facilities entrusted to you to steward.
