Do you ever feel like there are too many books on developing leadership to ever possibly read? I do. One of the best resources I have recently found is an online service that provides summaries of most of the books I want to and/or should read.
The Richwoods staff has been using these summaries for more than a year now and we’ve found the best way to work through a summary is in a small group so we can discuss a chapter or two at a time and apply it to our leadership toolkit.
Richwoods has secured a church license to share these summaries with our volunteers so we can all improve and hone our leadership. We’ve created a page on our website with a discussion guide and “red-dot” assessment for you to use in a group setting. Everything is in pdf format so you can download to read on the go or print it out.
Happy summer reading!
On average Richwoods needs to receive $39.1K in gifts to meet its 2016 operating expenses, 10% of which goes immediately to Missions and helping people in our community who are experiencing financial troubles.
Our budgets are set on a calendar year, submitted by staff and approved by the Elders of Richwoods. Our ability to meet the needs of the people, provide programs, offer ministry opportunities, and so on, are all contingent on the faithful and generous giving of the people who call Richwoods their church home. As a church we do not take annual pledges to set a budget but we work off of our historical giving and attendance patterns to project a conservative budget.
