Make the behind-the-scenes aspects of your church run smoothly.
Get "The Church Operations Toolkit: First 90 Days" for the tools, templates, and training new Executive Pastors or Church Operations Leaders need to support a growing church.
Managing the behind-the-scenes aspects of a church involves a HUGE variety of responsibilities.
In a single day, you might deal with...
- Running background checks on potential volunteers.
- Fielding questions about employee vacation policies.
- Deciding which church management software to use.
- Creating a process for the church's benevolence fund.
- And handling that last-minute, "Can you add this real quick for Sunday?" request from your pastor.
When you accepted the job (or volunteer role!), you didn’t expect it to be easy. However, you probably didn’t anticipate needing an MBA, a seminary degree, and 20 years experience as a small business owner to feel prepared for every possible scenario.
You feel like you’re wearing ALL the hats and wonder how in the world you’re going to figure it all out (much less get it all done).
➜ Should we have a social media policy for employees?
➜ What type of liability insurance do we need?
➜ How do we ensure we are compliant with all laws and regulations for the church daycare?
It’s A LOT.
If you recently accepted this job, you might wonder where to even begin. If you're the first person to hold this position at your church, that only adds to the overwhelming nature of the role.
In the midst of trying to have all the answers, juggling a million details, and working to get stuff done, you’re wondering when you’ll have time to participate in a small group or have dinner with your family.
It’s easy to get so busy working for God that you neglect your relationship with God.
You can't remember the last time you really dove into Scripture (other than to prepare for a service).
You tell your spouse you’ll be late...again...and know you’re in trouble at home.
You feel like you’re sacrificing your family on the altar of ministry but don't know how to stop.
There are too many tasks with serious implications for the church if you don’t do them NOW and handle them CORRECTLY.
- Making sure your policies and procedures to prevent child abuse are effective and in compliance with local laws.
- Getting insurance for an upcoming event.
- Navigating the fine line between keeping the church open to all while protecting your congregation from those who intend to do them harm.
You feel alone with much of this burden.
No one else really understands why you’re so insistent on having three or more people involved in counting the offering each week. Everyone else looks at you funny when you mention the need to document a job description.
You got into ministry because you wanted to serve your church and advance the Kingdom.
You bring a very particular set of skills to the table (no, not that kind…) that few people understand or fully appreciate. You’re often accused of being too “business-minded” or that you see details and tasks instead of the people to be ministered to. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
You care deeply for the congregation, staff, and people the church seeks to reach out to, so you focus on the million little details that make ministry happen each week.
Hiring and training employees
Running background checks on potential volunteers
Figuring out how to use a ChMS to track pastoral care so no one falls through the cracks
These are all aspects of supporting the ministry efforts of the church.
These are the types of tasks that no one asks about when they’re running smoothly...but that everyone has an opinion on when they break down.
As you look for solutions to the latest issue, you’ve probably found yourself going to Google for answers on how to handle a particular situation or searching your contacts to see if anyone you know might be able to send you a copy of their policy or offer a few ideas.
While those methods can work, they’re time-consuming and likely aren’t exactly what you’re looking for.
Instead, what if you had a toolkit of How-To Guides, Templates, and Training to help you quickly solve the latest issue and prevent future problems?
What if your first (or next) 90 days on the job were extremely productive because you had a checklist to guide your next step PLUS tools to help you complete those tasks?
What if you had a roadmap for the next 90 days?
That’s why I created The Church Operations Toolkit: First 90 Days
A collection of resources where instead of cracking open a search engine to solve every problem, you're one download away from starting-point templates, 'show-you-how-it's-done' tutorials, and ready-to-implement plans that get you from "now what?" to "whew, that'll work!" in a few clicks.
Don’t waste hours on endless Google searches that result in less-than-optimal information.
Stop wracking your brain to think of who you could ask who might have the template or information you’re looking for.

Owner of the Church Finance Toolkit
I help pastors and church planters navigate the complex world of church accounting and payroll. Whether writing budgets or managing the day-to-day bookkeeping, my goal is to help churches reach their vision by aligning financial processes and planning with the vision & mission of the church.
I purchased Church Operations Toolkit. I've been in the ministry for a while, and my business, Church Finance Pros, assists churches in setting up and keeping their finances in order.
What our customers say
"I actually just printed the facility check up and shared at staff meeting today. We are having a lot of discussions about “who’s responsible for that” with our new pastor and this was very helpful to say, let’s delegate these things and let several people share the load."
Executive Operations Director
"We have not been fantastic on the HR front lines at our church, so we were really able to get some help from the Employee Handbook and the Job Descriptions to help get us started in the right direction. Ours were both very outdated, so we were able to use what you had to start updating and tweaking it for our needs. They were both very helpful!"
