When you are organizing an event for your women’s ministry, you should take certain measures to ensure that the event will succeed in meeting its objectives. There are certain things that you should and should not do when you are organizing your specific event. If you make the wrong moves, you may cause problems that can jeopardize the event. Here are a number of decisions and actions that can make your women’s ministry event fail.
Forgetting to Pray
When you are doing the work of God, it is essential that you pray for God’s blessing. By praying, you can ascertain whether God approves of your decision to organize the event, and you can seek His intervention when you encounter problems. If you forget to pray to God, you may be making your decisions unguided. This could have disastrous effects if you begin to second guess yourself and the choices you make regarding your event. You should pray as frequently as you can while you are organizing the event in question and encourage everyone who is involved in the project to pray for God’s blessing as well.
Failing to Set Objectives
In order to have a successful women’s ministry event you need to set objectives. By setting objectives, you will have a direction to work towards as well as a measure to determine whether your event is a success or a failure. If you do not have any objective, you will be primarily working without a purpose and may end up planning your event in a haphazard manner.
Doing Too Much By Yourself
If the event that you are planning is a somewhat large scale project, it may be necessary to delegate tasks to your fellow members. When you are overwhelmed with responsibilities and deadlines, you will not possess the clear mind required in order to work and solve problems efficiently, which can put the project in disarray. It is highly beneficial to assign some tasks to members of your ministry or ladies in your church. By showing them that you have confidence in their abilities and by providing them with detailed instructions, they will eager to their best in completing their individual tasks.
It is important to ensure that the cost of planning your event does not exceed the set budget. If you run out of funds during the middle stages of the project, you may encounter major issues. Certain aspects of the project may be left uncompleted and you may have to complete a lot of re-planning in order to salvage the project. If you are not skilled in managing funds, you can ask a member with financial skills to help you calculate the cost of the event accurately.
