Church Administration: Creating Efficiency for Effective Ministry by Robert H. Welch

For churches and religious nonprofits, the business of business is not business - it is ministry. However, these organizations still have to plan. Because organization is needed to accomplish specific tasks, leadership must train and motivate workers for progress and effectiveness. Church Administration will assist pastors and church administrators in becoming effective and efficient leaders, managers, and administrators.

Twelve chapters deal with the following vital areas:

An Introduction to AdministrationBasics for AdministrationDocuments for AdministrationOrganizing the ChurchAdministering Personnel ResourcesAdministering Financial ResourcesAdministering Physical ResourcesAdministering the OfficeAdministering Risk ManagementAdministering Planning ActivitiesAdministering Program MinistriesAdministering Support Activities
I was recently asked to develop a new class on church administration for a growing Christian college. Since this is my first time to teach the subject, I contacted my previous church administration professor from my alma mater. This is the book he recommended. Since it is a very thorough book, some will find it overly detailed. Nonetheless,this book answers many questions in terms of procedures that many related books won't even touch. It covers literally every aspect of Church administration and leaves nothing to the imagination. Even though it is written from a Southern Baptist perspective, it is easily adaptable to any denomination. Its only weaknesses is that for someone new to the area of administration, this may seem overwhelming as a first text. Nonetheless, I will be taking a calculated risk and will use it with my summer students a month from now. In short, this is a manual that has been regularly updated and needs to be on every minister's bookshelf.
Excellent! This is really a book for executive pastors and those in lead roles. If you're new to church admin, a student, or even a seasoned shepherd, this book will prove to be an invaluable reference. As a Pastor myself this has been a great tool for educating my team. HOWEVER I'm sure it can become dated quickly, so look out for updates.
