On the same page…

I don’t know where this quote originated, but I’ve heard it said, “You will never be on the same page unless you have an actual page.” In other words if you have expectations, goals, and behavior you would like to see, you better put it in writing. Then you better make sure the person you are trying to lead can read your expectations for themselves.

At Oak Leaf Church, we desire to make Sunday morning a great experience from start to finish. If there is something we can do better we are probably going to find it. We never stop improving, so we are always drafting the next version of this policy or another.

A couple days ago our Connections Pastor and I sat down and worked for 3 hours making a few changes to our Host Teams. In case you are just curious, or you are one of our greeters, or you are church planter, I am going to provide a few of these lists for your review. I hope it helps you get everyone “on the same page.”
