An Update From Todd…

I sent this out earlier today to all of my friends of the website:

It’s been a while since I’ve sent out an email or given an update!  Things are been busy here in Ohio, digging out from the snow… but I hope this email finds you well!

I’ve appreciated getting to know many of you personally over the past years, and am excited to meet and work with many more of you this year!

Every December, I recalibrate for the coming year (as many of you do as well). Sometimes I over-evaluate the previous 12 months… what went well, what went badly, and ways that I can improve… all in an effort to make the biggest impact for Jesus and the Kingdom as possible in the coming new year.

In addition to my work at Leadership Network, I have two other major projects that I am working on with friends and colleagues in 2014: Ministry Briefing  In this update, I want to share some of my work and recent writings in the staffing area and my work at the new website. (Also, watch your email this Monday for another little surprise).

So… today, I want to introduce you to my new baby…  I played around a little bit with the site last year, but finally settled on a platform that will allow, what I think, the best experience on the web for churches that are looking for staff and staff that are looking for a new place to serve.  And we’ve worked hard over the past few months to build what I believe to be the largest, most accurate list of church job openings you’ll find anywhere. In fact, in the past 60 days, we’ve gathered over 600 church job openings that have been added and checked for accuracy.

If you’re currently looking for a new staff member for your church… we’d love to help you, personally, however we can, to get your opening in front of your next staff person.

If you’re a staff person looking for a new opportunity, we’re working hard to give you the greatest list of the newest job openings you’ll find anywhere.

But even if you’re not looking for a new staff person OR a new job, you’ll find that has a great library of resources to help you manage your staff and improve your professional career.  We’ve assembled over 250 articles and resources to help every church and church staff member. For example, we have6 resources on compensation issues43 resources for hiring new staff members,8 articles on salary negotiations, and 34 resources on how to better manager your staff.

Below is a sampling of some things we’ve added over the past week. I’d love it if you’d follow us on Twitter as well!

Let’s talk again on Monday… watch your email!  🙂
