The Church is an institution built on faith. All activities that the Church does should always be rooted in scripture. Like any other institution and organization, a church should be under excellent management for proper operation.

If you are a leader of a church or hoping to be one, these tips will help you to manage your church well.

Stay Grounded.

Stay grounded to the Church’s foundation. God and Scripture should be the center of the institution—our rock, and our hope. He is the center of the Church.

Serve Your People.

One of the purposes of the Church is to serve its people. As the body of Christ, the people of your church are a huge part of our ministry. It’s incredibly important to serve your people well.

Oversee Finances.

No one likes to talk about it, but finances are a big part of any organization, especially the church. We are called to be good stewards of our money. This is no different for a church. Be sure to have a least two people looking after your church’s finances.


Trust should be built between members and staff. The only way to build confidence in any institution is to be transparent. Let your staff and members know what is going on with the church, its plans, and also its problems. Show them where the money comes from and where it goes.


They say that “no man is an island.” This means that no man can do it alone, hence, delegate tasks. Learn to trust your staff and give them responsibilities.

Build Relationships

Build relationships with the staff and members. Building relationships means building trust. As Christians, we are called to be disciples for Christ. Discipleship is way more than just going to church with people. It’s also experiencing life together. Build good relationships, so that, you can be a disciple for Christ.

Be a Great Leader.

If the Church is led by a person who has a characteristic of a great leader, then, no doubt, the Church is in great hands. The tips mentioned above can also help you be a great leader.


Although there are clear differences between traditional organizations and churches, there are also many similarities. Like any other organization or business, churches need to be managed well. We hope these tips will help you and your team better manage your church and staff.
