As your church or nonprofit grows, the staff that supports it also grows. What may have once been a loose group of companions in ministry, has now matured into a much larger organization. Maybe at one time a handful of volunteers could handle most of the necessary duties, but now there are employees as well. And even though you never dreamed of being a supervisor, that’s one of your responsibilities now.
Too often, as a nonprofit expands, their operation and organizational structure doesn’t keep up. That lag can cause the whole mission to suffer as it reduces efficiency and effectiveness. But how are you going to find the time to diagnose the real issues? Where will you find the right solutions to alleviate the areas of suffering?
That’s where we come in. At New Wind, we are here to bring professionalism to your office, to your leadership team, and to your outreach strategy. Becoming “professional” doesn’t mean losing your zeal for the vision or becoming too corporate-like; professionalism means getting the proper procedures and training in place to streamline the mission.
When you’re serious about dealing with your ministry pains, see us. We will help you strengthen those areas where you’ve been limping along for awhile. Be it a chaotic office, struggling supervisors, or a lack of marketing vision, we can help.
Stop hindering the church or NPO with an amateur approach to organization and operations. Instead, get our help to identify and solve those pain points that are holding back your ministry’s effectiveness.
Upgrade your leadership team, your service/ support, and your outreach/ marketing. We guide nonprofits to create growth that’s healthy, sustainable, and impactful.
Your organization has done well so far, but now it’s time to step it up to a professional-grade. Time to develop a strong infrastructure to support your ministry: with well-equipped leaders, a maximized office, and a purposeful customer/outreach strategy.
Contact us today to schedule a complimentary, 30-minute phone consult. You have nothing to lose except a half-hour of time as we talk about your ministry pains and how we might be able to solve them. To be clear, this is NOT a free coaching session where we tell you what to do and you go away and do it. That would be a disservice to both of us- like slapping a bandaid on a serious wound. Instead, the 30-minute phone consult is more of a get-to-know-each-other meeting. It’s your chance to see if New Wind is the right ministry consultant for you.
We don’t do personnel staffing or marketing campaigns or lending assistance. Instead, we are a management consultant company that focuses on your people, your processes, and your outreach. Let’s talk about more specifics:
1. Supervisors need to be quick-thinkers, go-getters, and problem-solvers. Today’s workplace is fast paced and demanding on even regular employees, let alone for your leadership team. That is why it’s vital that every manager becomes an expert at leading.
If the leaders at your nonprofit are struggling then the whole ministry can suffer.
However, we can help you develop a team of great managers. We offer group training and individual mentoring.
- Employee Motivation and Building a Happy Team
- Effective Employee Discipline
- Hiring, Onboarding, and Training
- Understanding and Implementing Established Policies
- Earning Employee Respect
- Being Fair and Firm
- Integrity as a Boss
Learn more about how to Develop Great Managers.
2. Your office is the backbone of the organization. If it’s a mess there, it will probably be chaos everywhere else. Your office team deserves to have the best resources and procedures on-hand, to make their work more efficient and more beneficial to the organization as a whole.
If your office support is chaotic, then it’s hard for anything else to be in order. In can hurt attendance, ministry effectiveness, and even your community outreach.
That’s where we come in. We want to help you maximize your organization, so that your nonprofit can run more efficiently and effectively. Our ministry consulting covers essential areas as:
- Employee Policies
- Hiring Practices and Procedures
- Mandatory Postings
- Sales Support
- Required HR Recordkeeping
- Paperwork Flow
- Required Safety Policies
Learn more about how to Maximize Your Organization.
We also design customized staff manuals. To learn more see Church Employee Handbook.
3. Marketing can easily swallow thousands of dollars every month and still hunger for more. Before throwing more money into that deep maw, consider taking a more strategic approach. We are a consulting company, not a marketing agency, so we don’t have a bias in this area. We aren’t trying to sell you more Google Ads or get you to sign up for a social media campaign.
Instead, we’re here to help you formulate a comprehensive plan to reach and engage your ideal audience. Talk to us BEFORE starting a marketing campaign or signing up for some Facebook blitz, because we can show you a better way. Our concept is to help you develop the big picture so that you can then spend your marketing dollars with an effective plan. We want you to Woo and Wow in your outreach.
Our ministry consulting covers everything from attracting new people to retaining and engaging the people you already have, including:
- Discovering your Ideal Audience
- Marketing Avenues (Online/In-Person, Inbound/Outbound)
- Branding and Messaging
- Determining your Outreach Radius
- Member Care and Service
- Grand Deeds and Little Touches
- Website Design and Online Presence
Learn more about how to Woo and Wow in your Outreach.
