What Your Church can Learn from Disney

Bob FranquizChurch

I just got back from Disney World. Confession: we're a Disney family. We go to Disney World 3-4 times a year. But this year we went in May for Star Wars weekend. Why is this significant? It's not just because I'm a total Star Wars nut. It's because I learned that May wasn't typically a big month for them... until they started doing Star Wars Weekends. That has changed things completely. May is now one of the busiest times of the year for the Disney Parks. Here's what we can learn from Disney World... Take seasons of low attendance like ...

You are Not Alone

Bob FranquizChurch

I've had several conversations with Pastors this week and here's the common theme... "I'm nervous about the Summer." Every Pastor knows about the dreaded "Summer Slump". You know... ...when giving tanks because people are giving all their money to Disney World instead of tithing ...when people get inconsistent in their attendance because of family vacations, so they aren't inviting friends Here's why you aren't alone: because we are here to help. May's Outreach Ninja coaching focuses on how to grow over the summer and see a summer surge rather than a slump. June's Outreach Ninja coaching focuses on how to raise money for Outreach. The point is, you can ...

The Craziest Thing I’ve ever Done

Bob FranquizChurch

I got my friend hooked on the show "The West Wing" (which happens to be my favorite show of all-time). How did I do it? Easy. I said, "Spend the $1 on iTunes to buy the 1st episode and if you don't like it, I'll mail you the dollar." Well, he took me up on my offer. He downloaded the episode and the rest is history. He's a fan. I decided that if it can work with The West Wing it can work with Outreach Ninja. So I'm going to do the craziest thing I've ever done. I'm going to ... Read More

Why Pastors Give Up

Bob FranquizLeadership

Pastors seem to dropping out of ministry like ... A variety of reasons are cited, but if you drill down, here's what you'll find... Pastors.are.tired. They're wiped out and burnt out. Why? Because they're doing all the work alone. There's so much pressure to grow. So much pressure to take everything to the next level that Pastors are left with the burden of "making it happen" all by themselves. It's why we need to follow the "Jethro Principle" found in Exodus 18. You know, where Jethro tells Moses to delegate responsibility and train leaders who can lead "thousands, hundreds, fifties ...

A Wacky way to Double your Volunteers

Bob FranquizChurch

Something strange is happening at Calvary (the church I Pastor). People are signing up to volunteer in droves. It's bordering on Black Friday at the mall crowds for people to get plugged in to serve. Here's why this is odd: I've only taught one message in the last 12 months on servanthood (I know, not enough.) But people are signing up to volunteer faster than a politician can spend other people's money. Why is this happening? It's weird. Wacky some might say. But it's totally effective... and even a little fun. Here it is: People know that we have a ... Read More
