Try This: Empower Members to Meet Specific Needs in Your Community

Every community has a unique demographic profile of people. Because of this, each community will also have a unique collection of needs that provide unique opportunities for your church to reach out. Rather than having a staff member dedicated to each particular need, offer training sessions at your church to equip and empower members to meet the particular needs of your community. For instance, with a little training, members can provide peer counseling or mentoring for marriages, support for addiction recovery or mentor for at-risk youth. Your church staff will be freed up for perhaps their first priority: empowering the congregation to meet the needs of ministry in your church and community.
