If you need to organize a lot of activities and events for your women’s ministry, you may find that it is increasingly difficult to handle all aspects of the planning yourself. Rather than opting to shoulder all the responsibilities of the ministry on your own, it is highly advantageous to delegate certain tasks to your leaders and fellow members. Delegating tasks does not only make it possible for you to complete projects on time, but it will also ensure that the work will be completed to the best possible level.
Before you delegate tasks, you should firstly divide the tasks into a few categories and set up a department for each specified category. Usually, the work that require completion within a women’s ministry will include anything from event planning to administrative work, accounting and counseling to general management, among others. Next, you will need to select a number of members who possess the necessary skills and commitment to provide the required assistance for each department. Some of these members will need to assume leadership roles and may also have a number of members working under them. Each department should have a leader and this leader will be selected based on her ability to handle the individual responsibilities of her department.
It is important that you seek God’s guidance when you are choosing leaders for your ministry’s departments as leaders will need to set a good example to their subordinates. They must be spiritually committed and well-versed in the teachings of God, so that they can provide proper guidance at all times. Through prayer, ask God to lead you to the women who possess the spiritual strength and skills required in order to become leaders of your ministry’s departments, and He will show you which women you should select. These women will form the core group of the ministry and will keep you informed of the activities and achievements of their departments.
The delegation of tasks does not only help you to manage your ministry more efficiently, but can also make it easier for you to plan big events. When you are planning a large event, you will be faced with a myriad of tasks that are pivotal to the success of the event, including calculating budget, booking a venue, arranging furniture, decorating, buying supplies, arranging catering, promoting the event; and others. The only way to handle all these tasks efficiently is to delegate work. If you cannot get enough volunteers from your ministry, you can ask some of the women in your church to help you. Divide the project tasks into a few different categories and ask volunteers to choose which type of work they wish to do. Next, select a leader for each category of work. The leaders will report to you from time to time to notify you regarding the progress of their work. By delegating these different tasks, you can manage the project in a systematic way.
If you are contemplating planning a new event for your women’s ministry, you should try holding a Girls Night Out. This fabulous nationwide event is specially developed to provide great entertainment and spiritual edification for Christian ladies. Girls Night Out features witty comedy and inspiring sermons, and will bring an abundance of fun and laughter to the members of your ministry.
