- How it will impact attendees, employees, and volunteers.
- Whether the ministry will conduct meetings offsite.
- How they will adjust the normal schedule so that redecoration task is not hampered.
The planning should be robust yet loose.
- Making Communications Plan
In reformation work, communications at every level – suppliers or vendors, church members, and employees – is very important. Everyone should be well informed through blog posts, videos, photos, instructions, timelines, and updates. Regular update about the task is necessary and for that do not forget to use all communication channels, both print and online.
- Enjoy Flexibility and Fun
Be prepared for backorders, tensions, weather delays and chaos. They are natural elements in the home as well as church renovation. Those who look for perfection are the most disappointed ones. It will be better for you if you accept every change with grace and humility. Make the redecoration process an enjoyable one by engaging members into the process.
One can also write their names on doorways, walls, and floors. Those who will come to pray to Christ will also know these valuable persons of the religious place.
A refurbishment program can be the successful one when everyone participates in it. There are online management tools and expert members who can help with this reconstruction of the church. Remember in whatever work you do, regular service and communication should not be hampered.
