10 Common Mistakes When Leading Easter Services

When Easter Sunday approaches, church leaders feel the pressure to engage people like never before. In that attempt, we often do things that aren’t helpful. Here are 10 common mistakes to avoid while planning and leading Easter services.

Leaders Worth Imitating

We’ve all had heroes in our lives. They are the people who inspire us to do better, to do more, and to make our lives count for something valuable. Your church needs the type of leaders that set the bar for others to follow in their example. It’s time to go the second mile with leaders worth imitating.

Offering a Hand Up, Not Just a Hand Out

Learn from Miracle Hill’s President and Rocky Creek member, Ryan Duerk, as he describes their ministry and teaches on a nontoxic approach to helping the least and the lost. You can offer a hand up, not just a hand out.

The Danger of Decadence

When we believe our status to be contingent upon what we own in this life, it robs us of obtaining true treasure. Decide if you will either serve God or money.

Burdensome Leaders

Within the church, we understand that we can’t have perfect leaders, but somewhere along the way, we’ve grown to accept pathetic leaders. What happens when we water down the requirements for leaders? The whole church drowns. It’s time to go the second mile with demanding for more than burdensome leaders.
