Communicating Safely

MUSIQO

We would be lost without our electronic communication items, but sometimes they can get us into trouble.

Therefore, here are some boundaries that I think are great in protecting people all round.

Send Group Emails.

Social Chat in groups NOT one on one.

Staff communicate through Church email or work email NOT personal email, so evidence is there if need in the future. If you do receive any personal email to do with your position at Church, then forward it onto your Church email address and reply from there.

Contact under 16’s through their home phone or parents mobile and ask the parents permission if it is ok to speak with their child about………

SMS information only to youth. Ring if the SMS turns into a conversation.

Don’t message through Social Media.

Keep writing on Social Media Walls to minimum light message.

Don’t give out any phone numbers or addresses of others without their permission.

Stay away from video chatting, on any device, with a minor.

Mentoring and Discipling

The fitness area has taken off with people wanting a Personal Trainer. People find they need that support, that push, that training to get to where they want to physically be.

The same can be with people spiritually. I created and admin one of the largest Christian Facebook groups called Aussie Christians on Facebook and we are hitting the 4000 member mark. We have boundaries in place, so we only accept Christians and only Aussies, otherwise the group will just grow out. Most of those people attend or are connected with a Church, but quite a lot don’t go to Church anymore for one reason or another. A question on the group was – “who wants to be mentored?” We got a good response.

I’ve found people want that personal trainer, but not in the fitness area, but in the spiritual area. They want discipling and mentoring, to know that they are on the right track.
When choosing people to mentor, you need to know that they are serious. You need to know that they are going to accept what you give them and they won’t be offended by what you say to them. Pray and ask God if you are meant to mentor them, as no one wants to waste time, when God wants you doing something else.

One thing I’ve asked in the past is “Write me a letter, stating why you want to be mentored” and this has helped in the decision process.

Here’s an example of a form that I had, to go with it.

Leadership

4

image

It is important to train leaders and connect with them regularly. Run regular Leadership meetings so you can re -group often. Use this time to train and sharpen their leadership skills. Training sessions are for training, not preaching. If you don’t train your team, they won’t know what to do or how to be efficient, and that’ll make your job a lot harder.

What can you train then in?
Here’s some points :-
~Being an example. Leaders are to set the example. If you train your leaders to arrive on time, the rest will arrive on time. If you train them to start on time, the rest will arrive ready to start on time.
~Our attitudes, the way we think, speak etc, have to be an example of how Jesus would have us live. Most leaders are chosen in their qualities, so it’s important that they are reminded to keep standards that are pleasing to our Heavenly Father.
~Worship and prayer. Leaders can slacken off in this area. Encourage them to have a routine of devotion with God. If it helps encourage them to find another couple of people to meet with regularly to pray.
~Learners and growers. We are all learning and growing, so leaders, don’t get offended or upset if someone offends you.
~Cleaning. Always clean the inside of you. Not just a spring clean once a year, but an often clean. The bible says we are to examine ourselves, and that’s what we should do to make sure we are in the position where God wants us to be and living the example He has us be. Sometimes this time includes asking for forgiveness, forgiving and even breaking down a wall or two.
~Leading. Leaders must lead. Leaders are chosen for a reason and they usually step upto the plate and fill out the roll. Sometimes they don’t know how to lead, so they will follow someone in the group who isn’t a leader. Train them on the skills they need for leading. Do role plays and scenarios. Get them leading in leaders gatherings, where they can be guided and mentored to help strengthen their leadership skills.
~Ideas. Give leaders ideas of what to do with the people they lead. From studies to socialising. Sometimes they need help to think outside the box.

If you don’t train, You will drain.

Pastors aren’t meant to do everything and can’t do everything, so training is very important in a church.

Ephesians 4:11-13 (KJV)

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:

Churches should involve the five fold ministry for effective training, for the work of the ministry. Like people training for a triathlon. You have a trainer who trains for each area and they complement each other.
