As we come to the end of a calendar year, this might be a good time for church leaders to consider the following for 2022:

By-Laws

  • Do you need to update your church by-laws?
  • Is there a Statement of Biblical Authority?
  • A Statement on Marriage and Sexuality?
  • A Statement on the Sanctity of Human Life?
  • Guidance on uses of the church buildings?

Safety and Security

  • Are your facilities clean and safe?
  • Are you following best practices on preventing child sexual abuse and sexual harassment?
  • Are there internal controls for handling money?
  • Is there a credit card policy?
  • Do you have a plan for inclement weather, fire, intruder, and securing the buildings during services?

Personnel

Update Job Descriptions for Pastor, Staff, Key Leaders, and Committees.

A Compensation Study is a report we can prepare based on similar churches in the state and surrounding states.

These are but a few of the many issues church leaders need to give attention to on an annual basis. If you have questions, need sample templates, or would like a consultation visit, please contact me at Jeff.Ingram@LouisianaBaptists.org or 318.448.3402.
